Every year, the Legal Department hosts a winter social to reconnect after the busy holiday season. This year, their events committee generously incorporated a Silent Auction to support the Foundation. The team, equipped with solicitation letters, visited their favorite retailers and requested donations. Over 40 items were collected and put on display. Dr. Dugan Maddux, Foundation Board Member and Vice President of Kidney Disease Initiatives, spoke about the Foundation and gave a better understanding of the important work their donations will help support.
Bidding was competitive and people anxiously awaited their prizes. By the end of the evening, the total raised was just shy of $4,000. This was a great example of enhancing this already popular event with beneficial results.
