According to Robert Mirisch, Executive Director of the Second Chance Foundation, their recent fundraiser was a success held at The Palms Casino Hotel and the Brendon Theaters Hotel in Las Vegas.

“We raised a substantial amount of money for the Foundation at our benefit which featured a screening of the classic comedy “Some Like It Hot”,” states Mirisch.

The Second Chance Foundation is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2004 with the mission to educate the public on the critical need of organ and tissue donation, dispel some misconceptions about donation and create a greater willingness to donate.

Tony Curtis, star of “Some Like It Hot” with Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon, donated several pieces of art towards the silent auction conducted during the benefit. The donated pieces are montages of Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon from the movie “Some Like It Hot”.

“Art has given me a second chance to express myself. I sincerely hope that funds received from my art will give somebody else the far more significant second chance, that being a better quality of life,” states Tony Curtis.

After the screening of “Some Like It Hot” there was a question and answer session with Dean Jeff Koep, Dean of the UNLV School of Fine Arts, and Walter Mirisch, executive of the Production Company which produced the film.

Tony Curtis was not able to attend the event, but has subsequently arranged to meet some of the silent auction winners.

“We offer limited grants through our Patient Services Program to patients who find themselves in financial need in relation to organ donation. We exist to help patients who are in need of an organ transplant, on a transplant waiting list or are post-transplant,” continues Mirisch.

“It would have been considered science fiction six decades ago. Now people think of it as "routine". To me it will never be routine. It is the culmination of many miracles being rolled into one miracle that gives suffering patients a Second Chance at life.”

“It is the reason for the name of the Second Chance Foundation and it is the mission of this foundation to make the "Gift of Life" more available to those waiting for it and to make the healing process easier by easing some of the stress (physical, emotional, educational and financial) that those waiting for an organ experience.”

“The Jewish Torah tells us "To save a single life is to save the world." Can we do any better than that?” concludes Mirisch.
