Living Kidney Donors Network Fundraising Event

Lisa Petrilli a Marketing/Social Media Consultant and kidney transplant recipient is hosting a fund raising event with The Drake Hotel in Chicago. This inaugural event is called Cocktails4Causes.

Lisa and her social media friends came up with a brilliant idea – tap into the social media enthusiasts who are making big things happen in Chicago to raise money for a different charity each month; enjoying cocktails and merriment in the process.

And what better time to kick it off than December in Chicago – when the holiday lights will be ablaze and classic holiday, nutmeg-scented coziness is mixed with good cheer in the famous Palm Court.

The Drake will be donating scrumptious hors d’oeuvres, plus the holiday booze, and 50% of the the money you spend at the bar will go towards the Living Kidney Donors Network.

So this is your cordial invitation to join us for cocktails at the Drake Hotel on Wednesday, December First from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to raise money for the Living Kidney Donors Network.

Lisa has also invited the local Organ Procurement Organization, the Gift of Hope who will also be there so that anyone who wants to give “First Person Consent” to be an organ and tissue donor. For each person that signs up with the Gift of Hope, The Drake will donate an additional dollar to the Living Kidney Donors Network!

Won’t you please help us make a difference by joining us on December First for Cocktails4Causes?
