About this event
This momentous occasion will recognize four esteemed awardees, celebrating the gift of life given thanks to their efforts. The evening will also feature live entertainment by Protégé, an open bar, seated dinner, silent auction, and more. Raising over $290,000 and boasting an attendance near 600 last year, the Kidney Gift of Life Gala is one of Pittsburgh's premier philanthropic events!
In 1988, "Father of Modern Transplantation" Dr. Thomas E. Starzl presented the very first Kidney Gift of Life Award to his colleague and friend, Dr. Henry T. Bahnson at the inaugural Kidney Gala. Over the last 30 years, the Kidney Gala has recognized nearly 90 leading physicians and philanthropists for their innovations and commitment to improving the lives of millions of kidney patients everywhere. Join us this year as we toast to these incredible men and women!
