The National Kidney Foundation Serving CT and Western MA held it’s third Annual Night of Hope Honoree Reception on Thursday, November 1, 2018 at Aria Banquet Facility in Prospect. The theme for the evening was a Masquerade Celebration and many attendees got in the spirit of the evening by wearing some wonderful costumes. The wandering magician was a big hit and blended the theme into his magic! There were six Silent Auction Tables filled with a mixture of high-end items as well as more affordable, fun, family gift certificates.
This year the NKF honored four very deserving recipients. Dan Madison, Director of Transplant Services at Hartford Hospital Transplant Center, received the Excellence in Care Award. Dr. Margaret Bia, Yale New Haven Transplantation Center, received the Lifetime Achievement Award for her many years of working with kidney patients. Two institutions were also honored. Hartford Hospital Transplant Center received the Excellence in Care Award and Quinnipiac University also received the Excellence in Care Award.
After a cocktail hour the guests were seated in the Ballroom for a delicious sit-down dinner and dessert. Dinner was followed by dancing and fun was had by all!!!! Pictures from the evening are posted on the National Kidney Foundation CT face book page if you would like to see everyone in all their finery having a wonderful time!
