Gratitude: A Celebratory Benefit for the PKD Foundation Coming to Texas 

 

The second annual Gratitude: A Celebratory Benefit for the PKD Foundation will be held in Dallas this February 28, 2015, to kick off National Kidney Month. The Gratitude Benefit honors those who have made a considerable impact on local PKD Foundation Chapters, as well as significantly advanced the work of the PKD Foundation through fundraising and philanthropy. The support of those being honored has allowed the Foundation to make significant strides in our fight to end PKD.

In addition to raising vital funds to support the work of the Foundation, this special event provides a unique opportunity to bring together PKD supporters from the South Central region (Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana), as well as leaders from across the country to build stronger relationships and resources for fighting PKD. Please save the date and plan to attend this special event, which includes a VIP reception and dinner. To learn more about the Gratitude Benefit and meet our 2015 Honorees, please visit pkdcure.org/gratitude.
