Dec. 2: Christmas Wreath Decorating Event Planned to Raise Funds for the Children's Organ Transplant Association


A charity "Christmas Wreath Decorating" event is being held on December 2, 2019 to benefit the Children's Organ Transplant Association in honor of Heidi Dolan, who needs a life-saving lung transplant due to cystic fibrosis. Heidi, age thirty-one, will be receiving a lung transplant at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, in the near future.

What better way to start off the Christmas season than participating in a festive fundraising event surrounded by friends, holiday music and the smell of fresh pine. Event participants will receive an 18" grapevine wreath, live tree trimmings, ribbons and decorating elements to enjoy an evening of creativity and holiday merriment while benefiting this great cause. Event tickets are a donation of $60 per person. Sweet treats and adult beverages will be provided. Tickets are available now at by clicking the 'Events' tab at the top of the page. The event will be held at Paint + Canvas in Nashville, Tennessee from 6:30 - 8:30 pm on Monday, December 2, 2019.

The venue has been generously donated by Paint + Canvas, located at 6913 Lenox Village Dr, Nashville, TN 37211.

"We've had an amazing response since we started the fundraising process. We were really hesitant to even begin, but we are so glad we did. It's not just the financial part, but the emotional support is really uplifting and unexpected." said Elisabeth Dolan, Heidi's mother.

Heidi was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 9. Volunteers are raising $65,000 to assist with transplant-related expenses. 100% of the funds raised through the Christmas Wreath Decorating event go to COTA in honor of Team Heidi to assist with a lifetime of transplant-related expenses. We encourage you to reach out to your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to help this great young woman. For more information about our event, or other fundraising and volunteer opportunities, please contact Jacki Arnold at

Heidi's family has asked for assistance from the Children's Organ Transplant Association (COTA), a national charity based in Bloomington, Indiana. COTA is dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-needy patients. COTA's services are completely free of charge and 100% of funds generated by COTA community fundraising campaigns are available for transplant-related expenses.
