We've featured the great work of Life Goes On Foundation (LGOF) and its founder, Arthur Renowitzky, before but we learned this week that he was recently interviewed on the San Francisco-based KBLX-FM radio station about his life and the organization. You can hear the 14-minute recording of the interview HERE.
Renowitzky was paralyzed following a shooting incident that left him a paraplegic and he's devoted the last 10 years since the shooting to give back to the spinal cord injury community by supporting newly-injured individuals and giving inspirational talks to many schools and organizations.
LGOF is also celebrating its 10th anniversary by hosting a gala on Sat., Dec. 23rd from 6-10 p.m. at the Oakland Impact Club at 2323 Broadway. There will be food, entertainment, music, speakers, photography, red carpet setting and exclusive merchandise on sale. 100% of the donations raised will go to the LGO speaker series at schools and youth programs, hospital care packages to those in need, promotion of adaptive sports and an initiative for spinal cord injury awareness in our community to find a cure. You can purchase tickets to the event HERE.
