The National Kidney Foundation held its Annual Gift of Life Gala at the Sheraton Westport Chalet. The 2018 Gift of Life Gala was a celebration of good food, great drinks and inspiring stories. Guests enjoyed a balloon pop, silent and live auctions, fabulous food, entertainment and more. The Gala is well attended and sponsored by area hospitals, nephrologists, nephrology nurse practitioners, transplant providers, and those who care for patients with CKD such as cardiologists and nurse practitioners. The Gift of Life Gala’s success is crucial in maintaining our services and programs in the St. Louis community. Kasey Bergh was chairwoman of the event and J.J. Hayes served as master of ceremonies and auctioneer.
