Luncheon to highlight need for donors


The Christian Donor Network encourages Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors with its second annual Emerald Luncheon and Style Show set for noon April 14 at the Jewish Community Center, 505 Gypsy Lane. The network, founded by Ella Peterson, a 2008 liver transplant recipient, exists to provide financial support to immediate family members of those receiving organ or tissue transplants as well as to educate the community of the need for more people of color to become donors. Tickets are on sale now at the Center for Community Empowerment, 1420 Dogwood Lane, at 330-740-1982 or through style show participants.
