2023 “Reaching Beyond The Stars” Gala

NKFI 2023 Gala Web Ticket Graphic

October 21, 2023 @ 6:30 pm 10:00 pm EDT

The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana invites you to partner with us at our Annual Reaching Beyond the Stars Gala on Saturday, October 21, 2023 at Crane Bay Event Center in downtown Indianapolis. NKFI will honor Jane Estes and Dr. Carrie Phillips for their outstanding accomplishments and contributions to the field of nephrology and to the service and care of kidney patients in Indiana.

About the Event

Join us as we honor two outstanding leaders in their respective fields; Janes Estes, Vice President of PNC Bank and Carrie Phillips, MD, Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at IU Health and Director of Renal Biopsy Service at IU Health. These two women have made significant strides in their respective fields that have enabled the NKFI and numerous nephrologists to help Hoosier kidney patients statewide. Your support of these two honorees and the NKFI enables the many free programs provided by the NKFI including Kidney Camp for children with kidney disease, emergency financial assistance, kidney health screenings and more!

This year’s Gala theme is a magical masquerade night, though masquerade masks are optional.
