2017 Discovery Gala-post-event

Transforming Lives Through Research

Thanks to our donors and friends, $760,700 was raised for kidney disease research at the Discovery Gala on Saturday October 28, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue.




This year’s artwork is a human mini-kidney as it appears magnified 200X under a fluorescence microscope. The mini-kidney contains cells (blue) that self-organize into tubes (green), filter units (red) and blood vessels (yellow).
