ExecutiveBiz is excited about the upcoming 28th Annual Kidney Ball taking place next weekend, on Saturday, November 22 at the Washington Hilton. This year’s ball promises to be an inspirational and entertaining charity event to raise money for kidney disease, most prevalent in the Washington DC area. Alonzo “Zo” Mourning will be in attendance to sign copies of his new book “Resilience: Faith, Focus, Triumph” exclusively for guests. The Kidney Ball will also feature gourmet dining, a live silent auction, dancing, entertainment by the legendary Doobie Brothers, and a special video presentation, all of which are not to be missed.
This year the Kidney Ball is aiming to raise more than last year’s $1.3 million and, with the unwavering support from thousands of the area’s business and community leaders, we can expect nothing short of a slam dunk in raising over $1 million again this year.
“More than 13 percent of the population has kidney disease and most people don’t know it. As business leaders we have a social responsibility to the community at large. Working with non-profit partners, we can make a significant difference in the lives of many.”
–Jim Duffey, 2008 Kidney Ball Chair
