Modeled after Dancing with the Stars, the evening will feature leaders from each of Wisconsin's top medical and research institutions as celebrity dancers, paired with professionals from Fred Astaire Dance Studios. The dancers' performances will pay tribute to the second chances that are made possible through the miracle of transplantation and the gift of organ donation.


For the 2013 event, Sara O'Loughlin representing UW Transplant and Mike Anderson representing UW OPO will compete. UW Health transplant surgeon Dr. Luis Fernandez, last year's Spotlight on Life award winner, will be the special guest performing an Argentinean Tango to kick off the evening.
