2022 “Reaching Beyond The Stars” Gala

September 17, 2022 @ 6:30 pm 10:00 pm EDT

Reaching Beyond the Stars Gala Invitation

The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana invites you to partner with us in celebrating Transplantation at our Annual Reaching Beyond the Stars Gala on Saturday, September 17, 2022 at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

The field of nephrology has reached the stars with gains in transplantation. However, there is much more on the horizon and we are Reaching Beyond the Stars to enhance the lives of those impacted by kidney disease.  We need YOUR help to reach the next level in educating about transplantation!

About the Event

This year NKFI is spotlighting Transplant in Indiana at our annual black-tie event. In doing so, we will honor Dr. Islam Ghoneim and Dr. Dennis Mishler for their service to Hoosiers with kidney disease and transplants. You can also browse the exhibits of the Children’s Museum while raising funds to support the many free programs provided by the NKFI including Kidney Camp for children with kidney disease, emergency financial assistance, kidney health screenings and more!
