Donation Celebrations

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 memorialize their loved one with a custom floral portrait called a floragraph to adorn the Donate Life Rose Parade Float in the annual Rose Parade on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, Calif. The float was established as a memorial for organ and tissue donors, and as 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 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 these collectively form the dedication garden located on the front of the float each year.
