Tremendous thanks to King Car Wash of Westmont, IL and the entire Trilla Family - their fundraiser on Saturday, October 16 was an incredible success! Through all of Frank Trilla's hard work, it is anticipated this event will have raised close to $70,000! Their initial goal was $20,000. Many connections were made on Saturday to help us increase our presence in DuPage County on the program, event, advocacy and outreach fronts.
The passion, energy, and enthusiasm (he even purchased special orange soap!) that Frank, his entire family, and the team at King Car Wash exhibited to raise awareness for kidney disease, kidney health, and the life-changing gift of organ donation were profound, and the in-roads this will likely make in DuPage County are exciting and promising in equal measure.
Many thanks to Frank, his family, and his team for rallying behind this event and NKFI's mission. Here's to hoping that Frank receives the life-changing gift he needs as well - we are happy to report that he was officially added to the waiting list as of Thursday, and he already has family members testing to see if they will match.
