The foundation has consistently encouraged supporters to “Outlive Yourself” ever since they were founded in 2010. What does it mean to “Outlive Yourself?” It’s a spirit of giving and a mindset of going above and beyond for others and living selflessly. Taylor’s Gift encourages being an organ donor to be part of how you can Outlive Yourself. The Outlive Yourself awards will be hosted by Celebrity and Taylor’s Gift spokesperson, Jeff Probst, host of the CBS reality TV show, Survivor.
Probst will also serve as Honorary Chair alongside event chair, Kate Dorff. Dorff is a passionate supporter of organ donation; her sister, Abbye, received a heart transplant in April 2013, at the age of 26. Dorff’s grandmother was also a liver transplant recipient in 1994, and because of the selfless act of an organ donor, she was given another 17 years of life. Dorff has vowed to honor these two donors, their families and their selfless acts through supporting organizations like Taylor’s Gift. Karen Borta, CBS DFW News Anchor will be in attendance as the media host. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit http://blog.taylorsgift.org/event/2015awards
