THE LEGACY DONOR Foundation held its 14th annual “Soul Revival” at the home of Lauren and George Brower this past April. The event benefitted Legacy’s longtime mission of inspiring Louisiana residents to register as organ donors to help those in need.

Event chairs Michael Harold and Elizabeth Boh and honorary chair Danielle Kavanagh organized a fantastic evening, while George and Lauren Brower kindly opened their beautiful home to the foundation. Clint Smith, who just received his second kidney transplant from a living donor, was a special guest for the evening. He attended with his wife, Dr. Sheryl Smith, and spoke about his gratitude for the foundation.

The family and friends of David Voelker, the original founder, paid tribute to him through a special video presentation. Sadly, Mr. Voelker has since passed away, and his loved ones thank Legacy and its supporters for their support and ask that everyone continue fighting for the foundation’s mission to register Louisiana donors.

During the special evening, attendees danced, ate and sang under the stars. Dickie Brennan’s restaurant Tableau provided gourmet dining options, while Ben Goldring and the Republic National Distributing Company provided spirits and cocktails, including the “Soul Savior” specialty cocktail. Live music by bands including Levee Dawgs, the Progressive Baptist Church Choir and Brass-A-Holics kept the dance floor alive all night long. Legacy thanked sponsor IBERIABANK for its commitment to raise awareness about organ donation through its educational programs.
