Welcome to the 2018 Catwalk for Kidneys Presented by Macy's!
The event will be held on Sunday October 28, 2018 at The Hilton Garden Inn in Troy. Doors open to the public at 10 am. Featuring fashions, accessories and makeup by Macy's, Catwalk for Kidneys is an opportunity to raise awareness of kidney disease and organ donation, and to raise funds for vital services right here in the Capital Region!
This event has a story to tell! Our models feature philanthropic members of our community, patients and family members, donor families, living donors and clinic and academic professionals all joining together with a common cause - to make a difference right here at home! One out of every three people is at risk for kidney disease. Nearly 10,000 New Yorkers are waiting for a life saving kidney transplant. Our models are walking the Catwalk to tell the kidney story and to raise funds for those affected! Our services make an impact every single day and help with medical, nutrition and housing needs; patient, community and clinical education; school based programs that teach kids about lifelong kidney health; scholarships for young adults affected by kidney disease; healthcare advocacy and so much more!
We have an exciting new element to this year's event! Last year's top fundraisers, Patrick Noonan, Garnat Turner and Joan Hayner, are returning as the honorary chairs with Marie Campbell returning as committee chair! This means that models will be assigned to teams and each team will compete to take home the gold! We are also thrilled to have Benita Zahn returning as our event host. Benita has been a long time supporter of our local nonprofit community and is a very special friend to the Northeast Kidney Foundation.
Check out our fantastic lineup of models, get your tickets and support your favorite, and plan to join us on October 28 for the area's premiere brunch, fashion show, vendor marketplace and more! For more information call 518-533-7880 or email firstname.lastname@example.org! You can find information on sponsorship, purchasing tickets or being part of our auction or vendor marketplace here.
