A Saturday night fundraiser in the western suburbs highlighted the importance of becoming an organ donor.

The sold out event raised money for the Taylor's Gift Foundation. Taylor Storch lost her life last year in a skiing accident but she lives on through organ donation.

The decision by Tara and Todd Storch to donate their daughter's organs changed the lives of five different people and inspired the creation of the organization to help people in need of transplants. The Storches live in Texas but were on hand at this dinner in Naperville.

ABC7's Alan Krashesky served as emcee at the event.
