The Hope Affair, the American Kidney Fund’s national gala, is an annual celebration of the people who inspire us in the fight against kidney disease. The event brings together the renal community, national policymakers, patients and advocates for an inspirational evening to shine a bright spotlight on kidney disease, and to raise funds to support our lifesaving programs and services.

We hope you will join us on October 3, 2018 as we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of The Hope Affair.
