Miracle Maker Celebration

The Children's Organ Transplant Association (COTA) hosted our annual celebration to recognize and honor the many contributions provided by COTA Miracle Makers. As always, the annual event is organized to bring COTA families, volunteers, and organ donation advocates together to celebrate the impact made possible through their support and efforts. Ultimately, this gathering provides an opportunity to make new relationships and celebrate individuals and organizations we call our Miracle Makers. As has been our commitment for more than 30 years, 100% of the funds raised at the event will support COTA's mission and outreach.

This year, the 2018 George Taliaferro Miracle Maker Award will honor Indiana native David Hays. David has worked in the area for nearly three decades, and with the Children’s Organ Transplant Association for more than 20 years. During that time he has been a wonderful partner with the organization not only serving COTA families’ needs as our investment manager, but also as a significant financial supporter. David Hays is the founder and principal of Comprehensive Financial Consultants (CFC), a full- service financial advisory firm providing individuals, families, and business owners with the support they need to be able to retire on time and on their terms. David believes in leaving a legacy and during his time working with COTA, he has personally helped our families and managed the investment portfolio starting in 1996 and growing to more than $32 million in 2018. David, his wife Misti, and extended family are the true representation of this year’s Miracle Maker Celebration theme of Celebrating Indiana! The Children’s Organ Transplant Association is pleased to honor David, his family, and the entire CFC team, for their service to our transplant families and to the Bloomington, Indiana community.
