Join us at this year’s Gift of Life dinner and auction!
On behalf of Puget Sound Kidney Centers Foundation (PSKC Foundation), the Kidney Auxiliary of Puget Sound (KAPS) and the patients cared for by PSKC, we want to invite you to this year’s Gift of Life dinner and auction on September 15, 2018 at the Tulalip Resort Casino!
More about the event
For over 35 years, PSKC has served our community by providing a comfortable, high-quality care environment where dialysis patients are welcomed with compassion and given the support they need to lead healthier and fulfilling lives. Your generosity at the Gift of Life dinner and auction enables us to enhance programs that benefit patients directly and significantly.
Money raised at the Gift of Life helps us provide:
1. Nutritional supplements for patients who can’t afford them.
2. Beautiful facilities designed and equipped for patient comfort.
3. Assistance with life’s basic needs, such as heat, dental care and transportation.
