NKFMDDE Announces Celebrity Judges for Santé: A Culinary Odyssey

In Just 1 Day – JOIN US for Santé:
A Culinary Odyssey

On March 15, 2018 the National Kidney Foundation Serving Maryland and Delaware is hosting this unique event with 20+ top local restaurants who will feature their delicious creations, paired with enticing beverages from local wineries and breweries. Santé will also feature the popular “People’s choice” and the “Best of Santé” awards selected by a panel of celebrity judges.

This tasting event will have nearly 300 guests, and raises vital funds for the NKF-MDDE. Kidney disease is on the rise and is the 9th leading cause of death nationwide. One in nine Marylanders have kidney disease, and 10-12 die each day awaiting a kidney transplant. Today, there are 2,312 Marylanders waiting for a life-saving kidney transplant, and 9,300 who are on dialysis. Each year, kidney disease takes more lives than breast cancer or prostate cancer.

Location:  American Visionary Arts Museum, Jim Rouse Visionary Center,
840 Key Highway, Baltimore
 6pm – 10 pm
