Kaitlin's Benefit for Life
Kaitlin’s Benefit for Life will host its 7th annual fundraiser on Saturday, April 20 at Failoni’s Restaurant and Bar in celebration of National Donate Life month.
All donations raised will benefit Mid-America Transplant Family House, which offers safe and affordable mid- to long term single family apartment living for patients and their families who must relocate to St. Louis to receive life-saving pre- and post-transplant care.
A $25 donation at the door will include food, live music, outdoor games and access to a large variety of raffle and silent auction prizes. The fundraiser will start at 2 p.m. and run through 7 p.m.
“This is our seventh year hosting this event and every year we’ve not only accomplished our fundraising efforts but continued to increase participation,” says Karla McKeirnan, mother of late daughter Kaitlin who was an organ donor. “Throughout her life, Kaitlin always helped others- this is our way to carry her spirit on.”
Over the past six years, Kaitlin’s Benefit for Life has raised over $26,000 to help alleviate financial burden families and organ recipient patients face during treatment. Last year’s event raised over $8,000.
Event Time: 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM
