Our annual Gift of Life dinner and auction is next month! We’re heading back to Tulalip Resort Casino on Sept. 16, 2023 to raise much-needed funds for our kidney patients—and we hope you’ll join us!
The event, hosted by the PSKC Foundation and the Kidney Auxiliary of Puget Sound (KAPS), is a chance for members of our community to gather, hear inspirational stories from our patients and staff, and raise money for the vital care and education services we provide.
Proceeds from the Gift of Life event make a huge difference in supporting quality care at PSKC by providing:
- KAPS patient bags and blankets for new patients
- Nutritional supplements to help patients maintain a healthy balanced diet
- Kidney health education in our community, teaching people about kidney disease and ways to prevent it
- KAPS support of patient comfort and emergent needs
- Equipment and furnishings to support quality care environments
We simply couldn’t put this event on without our amazing sponsors, gracious table hosts, generous donors, and incredible volunteers.
Thanks to all who made our 2022 event a success (see photos below!) and register online today for our 2023 Gift of Life dinner and auction–you won’t want to miss it!
A big thank you to the 240 guests who attended our annual Gift of Life dinner and auction in September. We raised a record $237,000—the most dollars ever raised—at this year’s event!
Guests at the event take a look at the Puppy Package during the silent auction.
“It was truly a great evening. It really is special to see so many people turn out to support the work we do at Puget Sound Kidney Centers,” says Harold Kelly, president and CEO of PSKC. “Those of us at PSKC feel very fortunate to be part of such a caring community of friends and colleagues who share in our mission to enhance the lives of people with kidney disease.”
The ‘wine grab,’ always a favorite!
This year’s event also had a record number of sponsors and auction donors, and because of their support we were able to raise additional funds to support patients.
