The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois hosted around 400 of Chicago’s physicians, surgeons, corporate leaders and philanthropists on December 1st, 2012 at the Ritz Carlton Chicago. Our very own Jay Levine and wife Mary Ann Childers of CBS 2 Chicago served as emcees for the evening, greeting guests and discussing the importance of the Gift of Life Award. Gift of Life Award honorees included Access Community Health Network, the Consulate General of Mexico in Chicago and Vanguard Weiss Memorial Hospital.
The Gift of Life Gala brought a very influential crowd together for a night of dinner, dancing, and doing good. The goal was to raise money so as to continue helping those in need through NKFI's diverse programs.
As guests left, many bid goodbye to old friends and vowed to keep in touch with new ones. Cheers!
