WHAT IS GTF?
The Georgia Transplant Foundation is focused on providing both financial and educational assistance for those undergoing or waiting for a transplant. Today, GTF is the primary source for transplant patient assistance and support for all solid organ transplantation in the entire state of Georgia.
HOW GLAVINE GOT INVOLVED
After a friend of Glavine's put a flyer in his mailbox about money needed for transplant recipients during recovery, he became a founding board member and a celebrity spokesman for GTF.
“GTF is dedicated to helping transplant recipients and their families. The work it does changes the lives of those recovering from a transplant by the extensive resources it provides,” Glavine said.
TOM GLAVINE'S SPRING TRAINING
Since it's inception in 1992, Tom Glavine's "Spring Training" event has generated over $5.2 million to benefit the Georgia transplant community. The event, a night of friendly competition to raise money and awareness for the transplant community, allows attendees to bid on items in a silent and live auction as well as mingle with other athletes and challenge them to games of ping-pong, air hockey, blackjack, pool, poker and more.
The 20th annual Spring Training takes place Saturday, January 21, 2012 at the Delta Air Transport Heritage Museum. For more information on the event and sponsorship opportunities, CLICK HERE
