There’s a reason the Donors Are Heroes gala is called “The Party,” because as soon as DJ Eddie Tully puts the needle to the record, the dance floor fills up till the stroke of 11.

This year, songstress Jessy Kyle accompanied Eddie’s performance to really jazz up the night. Nearly 600 guests filled the ballroom at the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia and enjoyed delicious food and spirits from 11 area restaurants and caterers.


The money raised from ticket sales goes toward public awareness programs, school summits, and teaching initiatives, all of which are geared to dispel myths surrounding becoming an organ donor and emphasize the need for life-saving, life-enhancing transplants.
