Funds raised for the Kidney Ball go to support the National Kidney Foundation’s programs and services for kidney patients in the Washington, D.C., area. In the region, more than 700,000 people have kidney disease, 7,000 are on dialysis and 1,700 are awaiting a lifesaving transplant. The business community can lend their resources and expertise to helping charities like the National Kidney Foundation reach their goals.
