Story in the Oregonian and Eat at Chevy's for a Great Cause

June 16, 2010

Don Colburn who was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and a former reporter for the Oregonian, did a great story on my wonderful anonymous donor. It ran in Wednesday's Oregonian (READ IT BELOW)
Check it out. You can see just what a lucky SOB I really am. Will I ever learn the identity of my anonymous donor? Will we meet? Stay tuned!

What are you doing on the first day of Summer? I'm going to be eating at Chevy's. Why?

Celebrate the first day of summer with great food and a great cause! Dine at Chevys Fresh Mex® restaurant in Hillsboro on the first day of summer, Monday, June 21st. Here’s how it works: Bring the attached fundraising flyer and Chevys Fresh Mex ® will donate 25% of your meal proceeds to Donate Life Northwest’s programs that register organ, eye and tissue donors and save lives.

All you need to do is print out this
flyer, show up and enjoy. Donate Life is a great organization and one that I'm donating my time and money to. I feel so much better after my kidney transplant. I am happy to do whatever I can to give back!
