On March 8th, 2014, over 500 guests are expected to attend the National Kidney Foundation’s 30th Annual Kidney Ball at Vie in Philadelphia. The Kidney Ball is one of the organization’s largest annual fundraisers and is expected to raise over $400,000 for local kidney patients. Each year the NFK selects a volunteer and physician to honor who has championed our mission and is dedicated to helping those with kidney disease. This year’s gala will honor NFK Volunteer Fran Lynam and local nephrologist Dr. George Francos. The NKF is an organization dedicated to the awareness, prevention, and treatment of kidney disease throughout the United States.
