A New Year and the flush of charity events begin. Santé is the Kidney Foundation of Maryland’s annual fundraiser taking place Thursday, February 28 at the Visionary Art Museum, 6-9 pm. An evening filled with food and drink from Baltimore’s top restaurants and caterers. Adding to the festivities will be celebrity judges, the People’s Choice competition, entertainment, raffles, and a silent auction. Admission to this business casual evening is $100/person or $2,500 for a table. Actually, $100 per person for an array of unlimited food, libations, and entertainment is pretty much a steal for an evening out……more information and tickets HERE.
I have always supported the Kidney Foundation, in memory of a girlfriend, Peanut Kassel, who was the first live kidney transplant at Johns Hopkins. Also, my cousin Debby… both, who for long periods were on dialysis and had their lives prolonged with a transplant. Both are gone now, but I am ever so grateful for the strides the Kidney Foundation has made for patients in the past 40 years since they passed.
