14th Annual Kidney Open Golf Outing – Thank you so much!

What a beautiful day we had at last year’s 14th Annual Kidney Open Golf Outing! We really sank a “hole-in-one” for our transplant families and made the outing a huge success!

Thanks to the participation and generosity of our community, we raised more than $108,000 to support our Adopt-A-Family Program, which will help us continue

carrying out our mission to care for transplant families in need, even to those who cannot afford our nightly fee.

Remembering the words of Steve and Audrey, our guest speakers and past Family House guests: “The Family House provides you with what you need to get through transplant…and they give you a family. You feel like you belong.” It is your support that helps us remind those undergoing the transplant journey they are not alone. While Steve was recovering from his lung transplant, Audrey was able to stay by his side here at the Family House. Whether you joined us for a day of golf, sponsored part of our outing, or volunteered to support our staff, you helped make more experiences like Steve’s and Audrey’s possible.

We’d also like to thank all of our sponsors for supporting this event! Thanks to your help, our transplant families will be well taken care of!
