The LifeStream Blood Bank Thanks4Giving Gala
Thank you to all who joined us Thursday, November 21st for our inaugural Thanks4Giving Gala at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in Indian Wells.
This first-class affair, presented by Blanke Schein Wealth Management, was attended by Coachella Valley philanthropists, business partners, dedicated blood donors, and other LifeStream supporters.
Legendary two-time Grammy Award winner Rita Coolidge displayed her enduring vocal versatility while performing her many musical hits. The elegant evening also included video tributes, silent and “live” auctions, and a few other fundraising opportunities. Desert Oasis Healthcare was also recognized as the honoree of the evening.
All funds raised at the Thanks4Giving Gala will help LifeStream purchase new state-of-the-art, eco-friendly mobile blood coaches and equipment for the new Rancho Mirage blood donation center. The new mobile coaches and the Rancho Mirage blood donation center will improve LifeStream’s collection efforts and efficiency greatly and are crucial to maintaining a healthy blood supply in the Coachella Valley and surrounding areas.
