Join us for a Celebration of our “Community of Compassion” During Eye Donation Month

This Eye Donation Month, SightLife cordially invites you to our second annual Community of Compassion Virtual Celebration on Wednesday, November 17 at 5:00 PM PST, where we will honor our passionate community of partners who help provide hope and healing through the gift of sight. Register now.

The event is an opportunity for our community to collectively honor those who have personally been touched by cornea donation. SightLife donor families, recipients, donation partners, and friends from all over the country will be in attendance for the unique event and come together in celebration of Eye Donation Month. The event will honor those who make donation possible and pay special tribute to the remarkable individuals who selflessly donated the gift of sight, and the transplant recipients whose lives have been transformed by their cornea donor’s generosity.  

Last year, over 300 people joined our inaugural virtual celebration from an unprecedented number of locations including Washington, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Montana, and many more. This year, the event will be hosted by SightLife’s beloved Family Services Team; Rebecca Grossman, Senior Manager of Family and Community Resources and Stacey Dalman, Family Services Specialist.  

The virtual celebration will feature personal stories of transformation and impact from donor families and recipients, and highlight our extended community of partners in donation. Guests will also have the opportunity to hear from SightLife leadership to learn more about our mission and the transformative impact of donation. Learn more about the event program below.

We welcome anyone involved in the donation process, or interested in donation to join the festivities. Register today to join one of our most meaningful convenings of the year.
