LifeCenter presents Night of the Stars on September 16th, 2023

LifeCenter Organ Donor Network is hosting its prestigious Night of the Stars event at Cincinnati Historic Music Hall on September 16th.

Night of the Stars honors healthcare professionals throughout the Greater Cincinnati area who partner with LifeCenter during the donation and transplantation process in support of the organization’s mission and vision.

Healthcare professionals in attendance will hear messages of gratitude from LifeCenter staff, donor families, and the keynote speaker.

The highlight of the evening is the opportunity to honor those in attendance with the LEGACI awards. The LEGACI awards recognize individuals who have been nominated for the following six categories: Leadership, Education, Gratitude, Advocacy, Clinical Excellence, and Innovation.

For each category, three individuals have been nominated by their peers, or a LifeCenter staff member for going “above and beyond” in a specific category. One person nominated in each category will walk away with the top award.

There are many healthcare heroes in the story of organ donation and transplantation, and it’s humbling for LifeCenter staff and affected families to be in a community amid so many. To quote Dr. Thomas Starzl, often considered the father of modern transplantation, “It was necessary for the mind to see the world in a different way.” Healthcare heroes in Greater Cincinnati see the world in a different way every day, and for that, LifeCenter is grateful.

LifeCenter is a Donate Life organization serving more than 2 million people throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. Since 1981, LifeCenter has worked closely with local hospitals to facilitate the recovery of organ and tissue donation, which has saved and healed countless lives in our community. You can make a difference just by saying “yes” and registering your decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donor at
