The 25th Annual Kidney Foundation of Ohio Gala will be held on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at the Westin Cleveland Downtown from 6:30-10:30pm. Guests will enjoy cocktails, dinner, live entertainment, and silent and live auctions.
The 2017 Person of the Year award will be presented to Eric A. Klein, MD, Andrew C. Novick Distinguished Professor and Chair, Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine for his dedication and commitment to the field of urology and nephrology and the mission of the Kidney Foundation of Ohio.
The annual golf outing is held on June 12, 2017 at Sweetbriar Golf Course in Avon Lake in memory of Dennis Kennedy who worked as the Director of Technical Services for Centers for Dialysis Care (CDC). Dennis started a golf outing for CDC employees and dreamed of one-day golfing at Pebble Beach until his passing in 1996. His coworkers decided not only to memorialize Dennis by continuing the golf outing, but to turn it into a fundraiser for his second love, kidney patients.
Golfers will enjoy golf (with cart), beverages, heavy hors d'oeuvres and a program. Prizes are awarded to top teams and competition winners.
