Mark your calendars for this year's Gala! As one of the largest and most popular fundraising events put on by the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois, drawing hundreds of Chicago's physicians, surgeons, philanthropists and members of the business community, this is an evening you will not want to miss.

Proceeds raised from the evening will go directly to support the crucial programs and services provided by the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois - programs that help people affected by or at-risk for kidney disease throughout Illinois. Your generosity and support of the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois is what makes these programs possible.
