Speaker: Donate Life Nebraska

Donate Life Nebraska is a non profit coalition of partner organizations and individuals who work together to inspire Nebraskans to sign up as organ, eye and tissue donors. 

Cindy is a heart transplant recipient and volunteer. 

In 1987, Cindy travelled to Houston for a vigorous testing process and eventual heart transplant. It took 5 months of being away from her husband and young daughter to get the procedure. 
 
You can sign up for organ donation at the DMV or online. DMV registers your wishes online or register yourself at www. Donatelifenebraska.com. 

450 people in Nebraska are on the donor waiting list. As a donor, you can save and heal the lives of more than 50 people. 

Thank you Cindy for the interesting information.

Speaker: Omaha Performing Arts



Omaha Performing Arts missions are: 
  • To steward the Orpheum and Holland Centers. 
  • To enrich the lives of the communities around Omaha. 
  • And to educate and create community involvement.

The venues are the home of the Omaha Symphony, various speakers series,  and touring events. One major outdoor event is Jazz on the Green. 

The great engagement with the audience has led to better and better events.  Preseason sales have been strong to entice specialty shows to come to Omaha.

Education includes special performances for students, master classes for theater students and student competitions to compete nationally for recognition.
Ticket Omaha is owned by Omaha Performing Arts. They sell tickets for their own events and other venues including the Community Playhouses. Buying tickets online from Ticket Omaha is the same as buying from the box office at the Holland Center. 

Thanks for all the excellent information. To see the current schedules or buy tickets - OmahaPerformingArts.org
