Ask the Doctor
Questions about kidney disease? Risk factors? Signs and symptoms? Are you concerned about yourself, a friend or family member? Ask Dr. Spry.
The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is proud to announce that our annual Kidney Gift of Life Gala will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014. To accommodate the growing size, the All that Glitters is Gold Gala will take place at the venue that breathes black and gold: Heinz Field's East Club Lounge. This year's Gala will feature live entertainment by Protégé as well as a VIP reception, open bar, sit down dinner, a Shutterbooth photo booth, and silent and live auctions. The spotlight will shine during our special Gift of Life Awardee presentation.
This year's confirmed Gift of Life Awardees are: Dr. Kevin Ho, Nephrologist and Associate Professor of Medicine University of Pittsburgh Renal-Electrolyte Division; and Beth Pruchnicki & The Pruchnicki Family, long-time Erie Kidney Walk Volunteers and Fundraisers. The awardees epitomize the profound commitment that is essential in providing the best quality of life for those affected by chronic kidney disease.
This year, the NKF hopes to raise $195,000 at the Gala to put toward our free programs and services across our 47-county region.
