Debilitating kidney diseases impact approximately 20 million people in the United States today. Groups at high risk include African Americans, Hispanics, senior citizens and people with diabetes. In Texas, there are over 30,000 people on dialysis and 4,000 on a transplant list. The number of patients on dialysis is anticipated to double this decade.
Since 1999, the dedicated volunteers of KidneyTexas, Inc. have worked in tandem with our generous underwriters to raise over $4.3 million for local efforts to improve the ability to diagnose and manage kidney disease.
Each fall KidneyTexas, Inc. hosts its Luncheon & Fashion Show in an effort to raise money for designated beneficiaries and awareness for a disease that affects millions of people each year. The success of this event depends heavily upon the contributions and dedication of our Dallas business and community leaders. Your support is crucial to the success of our mission. Last year's KidneyTexas Luncheon & Fashion Show included appearances in these media outlets:
PaperCity, Modern Luxury Dallas, Park Cities People, Preston Hollow People, Estate Life Magazines, Good Life Family, Katy Trail Weekly, MySweetCharity, RSVP, Dallas Doing Good, CultureMap.com, eBuzzNewsletter, PhilanthropyLifestyles, D CEO, and various social media outlets.
