All our Honorees are deserving of these awards for not only caring for their patients but caring about their patients.
It will be a fun-filled evening with a delicious sit-down dinner, silent auction tables with many high-end items and a chance to support not only the honorees but the National Kidney Foundation’s programs and services. The theme is a Masquerade Celebration so we ask that people wear suits, dresses or gowns embracing the masquerade theme. There will be Masks on every table for those who might want one.
