Transplant House of Cleveland

Transplant House of Cleveland is 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization with an important mission: to provide temporary, affordable housing in a home-like environment for organ transplant patients and their families while they visit Cleveland for medical care.  

The Transplant House of Cleveland board is searching for a facility for renovation while simultaneously growing its base of friends and raising much-needed funding.

Please join us in this mission to create a cozy, welcoming home-away-from-home where transplant families can face medical challenges with the help and support of others.  You can make the difference in many lives by contributing financially, sharing your skills and connecting us to others who can help us open our doors.

Help this vision become a reality by making a financial contribution. Click Here to donate to a great cause. Thank You!

A Second Dance at Life 2018

The Crystal Ballroom sparkled, the celebrities dazzled, and a $50,000 gift from Dworken & Bernstein Law Firm wowed the 240 people in attendance at the "encore performance" of A Second Dance at Life!  This unique celebrity dance competition fundraiser, designed by Lisa Vegas and Matthew Miller, highlighted the gift of life given through organ donation and transplantation, while raising funds for Transplant House of Cleveland.  

Income to the House is estimated to be more than $150,000 net, but final numbers are being calculated now.  The significant gift from Dworken & Bernstein - the largest single gift in Transplant House of Cleveland's history - was a surprise to all.  Pat Perotti, creator of the firm's Ohio Lawyers Give Back program, presented the check to the very loud cheers of the packed ballroom.  

The evening also included a high-energy auction and paddle raise, led by Mark Schroeder, and the favorite celebrity dance competition, with very impressive performances by:

  • Kenneth Chavin, M.D.  and Kristen Dobson, Cha Cha

  • Lee Ann Howard and Rick Diedrich, Salsa/Bachata Medley

    Both celebrities, coached by Parker Amsel and Rebecca Sweet

  • Candice Monroe and Alonzo Southard, Kizomba/Tango Medley

  • Danielle Serino and Heriberto Perez, Cha Cha 

  • Brandon Chrostowski and Nika Obrosova, Argentine Tango

  • Christina Lindenmeyer, M.D. and Tony Scheppler, Rhythm Medley
