The courageous decisions of donors and donor families motivate and inspire all of us at LifeCenter Northwest. To honor their gifts, we hold annual events that celebrate your loved ones and honor their legacy.
We believe that it’s important to celebrate the lives of donors and the second chance provided to recipients through the gift of life. Each year, we host Donation Celebrations across our region to honor donors, their families, and all members in the community who have a connection to organ, eye and tissue donation. These gatherings provide an opportunity for people to come together to honor donors, share their stories, and see firsthand the widespread impact of organ, eye and tissue donation in our communities.

Rose Parade Donate Life Float
Each year, LifeCenter Northwest selects a donor family for the opportunity to honor their loved one through the creation of a “floragraph” (a memorial floral portrait) to adorn the Donate Life Rose Parade float in the annual Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, California. The float was established as a memorial for organ and tissue donors and a platform for donor families, living donors, and transplant recipients to share the important impact that organ, eye, and tissue donation has had in their lives.
The float also features a dedication rose garden in which individuals and organizations can purchase a rose in honor of someone who was touched by donation. Each rose is placed in a vial containing a personal message and collectively form the dedication garden on the front of the float.
