2014 Discovery Gala

Join us Nov. 14, 2015 | for the next Discovery Gala

2014 gala raises most ever

Thanks to sponsors and 370 attendees, our 2014 Discovery Gala raised $691,000 for kidney research, the most in the event’s three-year history.

Attendees bid on spectacular auction items, including a flight for four, a champagne brunch, Seahawks tickets, and European Viking River Cruises.

Thank you for your support. Next year’s Discovery Gala will be Saturday Nov. 14, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue.

In addition to bidding on auction items, guests heard from former Bothell mayor Debbie Treen, who gave her daughter a kidney.
