SACRAMENTO - The Sacramento Kings organization helped raise awareness for organ and tissue donation, by hosting a "Donate Life" night during Wednesday's game against the Golden State Warriors at Sleep Train Arena.

The idea was inspired by Phil Horn, Vice President of Ticket Sales for the Kings, who donated his kidney to his wife Danea Horn in October. She has since released a book on her experience.

Phil and Danea Horn were joined by other donors/recipients to take part in a pregame basketball scrimmage against community doctors, who are part of the donation process. The game took place prior to tip-off between the Kings and Warriors.

One of the players competing in the game was Dr. Kevin Anderson, who is both a physician and a heart transplant recipient.

Fans attending the game were able to enter a raffle for a signed DeMarcus Cousins jersey by showing that they were an organ donor.

"You have the power to SAVE lives."
