Las Palomas Restaurant
The next NCJW luncheon is Tuesday, February 13 at Las Palomas Restaurant at 3201 Bee Caves Road, from 11:15am to 1:00pm (networking time 11:15am to 11:45am). Guest speaker, Michelle Segovia, will be speaking about the critical shortage of organ donors and how we can help save lives by registering to donate. There are more than 116,000 men, women and children awaiting a life-saving transplant and 22 die each die because there are not enough organ donors. One person can save eight lives through organ donation.
Ms. Segovia is the Director of Communications at Texas Organ Sharing Alliance (TOSA.) She is the primary spokesperson for the organization to increase public awareness of organ donation through media placements, presentations and special events. She manages staff in the Communications and Donor Family Services departments, handles issues management for the organization and recruits, trains and manages volunteers in Austin, Waco and San Angelo.
Michelle spent eight years as a broadcast journalist and news producer at various television stations before going to work at one of the world’s leading public relations agencies. After leaving the agency, she has spent the last fifteen years with TOSA delivering the life-saving message of organ donation.
Texas Organ Sharing Alliance (TOSA) is one of 58 federally-regulated organ procurement organizations in the United States. Established in 1975 as South Texas Organ Bank, TOSA serves Central and South Texas offering organ recovery and donation services for individuals and families who wish to offer others a second chance at life via organ donation.
The luncheon cost is $20 for NCJW members and $23 for non-members, all inclusive (cash only please). Newcomers welcome!
