Polycystic Kidney Disease Fundraiser Aims to Top Record


The Hamilton Chapter of the PKD Foundation of Canada’s first annual dinner-dance benefiting Canadian research on polycystic kidney disease (PKD) raised more than $6,000 – the highest amount by any chapter’s debut fundraiser for the charity. This spring, the Hamilton Chapter will be stepping up again to try and top $7,000 at its HOPe FOR A CURE in March – National Kidney Month.

Hamilton, Canada, February 24, 2016 --(PR.com)-- As fundraisers go, this one has proven to be uniquely successful, thanks in large part to the lively music, which appeals to people of all ages.

“The plan is to hold an affordable family-friendly, fun night out; it’s easy to have a great time knowing you’re helping a good cause,” says Joy Pekar, Event Organizer.

The PKD Foundation of Canada is the only national organization exclusively devoted to providing support for polycystic kidney disease patients and raising funds for scientific study of the inherited disease that affects about 1 in 500 people worldwide.

An Italian themed dinner generously sponsored by Gordon Food Service, and swing era music performed by the Jumpin’ Jive Band will keep people hopping between 6pm and 11:30pm on March 5 at Germania Club, 863King Street East in Hamilton, Ontario.

“HOPe FOR A CURE 2016 promises to be bigger and better, with the amazing items that have been rolling in for the silent auction as well,” said Shiona Mackenzie-Morrison, Chapter Coordinator.

Tickets, $25 in advance or $30 at the door, are available online through Eventbrite, or by calling the PKD Foundation of Canada.
