Doubleheader featuring “Police vs. Fire” Soccer Match Immediately Following Lights FC Match.
Using its platform as a professional sports team locally to help raise awareness for important causes around the valley, Lights FC & Nevada Donor Network are teaming up this week to raise awareness for the 618 Nevadans currently waiting for a second chance through organ donation.
At Saturday’s home match (7pm kick-off vs. Monterey Bay FC at Cashman Field), Lights FC players will wear specially designed commemorative jerseys featuring various human organs that may be donated upon a person’s death to provide life to others in need.
The need for local residents to register as organ donors is at critical levels, especially within the local Hispanic community where organ donors often require additional demographic matches to ensure the success of the transplant.
All fans are encouraged to go to NVDonor.org/Lights to register today to become a hero!
In addition, as a thank you to all local healthcare workers, Nevada Donor Network & Lights FC is donating match tickets to local healthcare workers & their families as a thank you for all they do keeping local residents healthy. Local healthcare professionals can redeem their tickets at LightsFC.com/DonateLife.
“This is an important cause — and one that we are proud to help raise local awareness,” said Lights FC Owner & C.E.O. Brett Lashbrook. “We sincerely hope that this initiative starts important conversations within families and causes fans to learn more about the 591 fellow Nevadans that are currently waiting for a second chance through organ donation.”
