A Culinary Odyssey...

Dear Friends,

We are very pleased to announce that the 2014 Santé: A Culinary Odyssey sponsorship packages, tickets and tables are now available for purchase.  The event will take place on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at M&T Bank Stadium.  More than 45 top local restaurants will feature their delicious creations, paired with enticing beverages. 

This impressive event, attended by more than 900 guests, raises vital funds for the NKF-MD. Kidney disease is on the rise and is the 9th leading cause of death in the United States. One in nine Marylanders have kidney disease, and 10-12 die each day awaiting a kidney transplant.  Today, there are 2,450 Marylanders waiting for a life-saving kidney transplant, and 8,580 who are on dialysis. Each year, kidney disease takes more lives than breast cancer or prostate cancer.

Santé will raise much needed funds for our patient emergency assistance program, providing essentials such as food, housing costs, utilities, medication, and transportation to dialysis.  Dollars raised also fund vital research at Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland.

Your generous support ensures that we can continue to support kidney patients, their caregivers and provide awareness, education and treatment options to the communities we serve.

I encourage you to purchase your tickets or tables today and join us for an exciting evening in November at M&T Bank Stadium, Club Level!

I look forward to seeing you there, and greatly appreciate your support.
