Community members turned out for a fundraiser to help encourage organ donation.

ABC 7's own Alan Krashesky was the emcee for Saturday night's event, Taylor's Gift fundraiser dinner.

The organization is named after a late teenage girl who saved five lives through organ donation after she died during a skiing accident.

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White also attended tonight's event, as did Walter Payton's son, Jarrett.
