2014 Kidney Gift of Life GalaThanks to our generous sponsors and supporters, the Kidney Gift of Life Gala raised nearly $175,000 for the National Kidney Foundation! The funds raised at the Kidney Gift of Life Gala enable us to help tens of thousands of local residents in our 80-county territory who have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), including those who are on dialysis and/or are anxiously awaiting a transplant.
