Spotlight on Life Gala Event

Ever wonder what it would be like to be a ballroom dancing “star?” The National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin (NKFW) is giving you the opportunity to shine up your shoes and put your best dancing foot forward! They invite you to join the NKFW as they “waltz” their way to the 2010 NKF U.S. Transplant Games® at the “Spotlight on Life” Gala on Saturday, January 30. Held at the Mequon Country Club, the black-tie optional “Spotlight on Life” will be a celebration of organ donation and life-saving transplantation.
