We are very pleased to announce that our 2013 Santé: A Culinary Odyssey event will have a great new venue and a fresh, exciting face to the evening. The event will take place on Thursday, November 21, 2013 at M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Super Bowl XLVII Champion Baltimore Ravens. More than 40 top local restaurants will feature their delicious creations, paired with enticing beverages. New this year is the exciting “People’s Choice” award chosen by the guests, and the “Best of Santé” awards selected by a panel of judges.

This impressive event, attended by more than 700 guests, raises vital funds for the NKF-MD. Kidney disease is on the rise and is the 9th leading cause of death nationwide. One in nine Marylanders have kidney disease, and 10-12 die each day awaiting a kidney transplant. Today, there are more than 2,000 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, prostate cancer and leukemia.

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.
