Whether you're a lover of ballroom, hip-hop, salsa or swing, you won't want to miss a move at the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin's Spotlight on Life event. Transplant and donation procurement professionals from throughout Wisconsin compete on the dance floor to promote organ, tissue, and eye donation and raise money for the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin's free supportive programs.
Each dancer represents a different transplant or donation organization that the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin works with throughout the year to offer educational programs and public awareness campaigns for not only kidney disease but also all other chronic organ, tissue, and eye diseases and conditions. Money is raised for the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin by voting for the individual dancers through donations of $5 or more. Each $5 donation represents one vote.
VOTE for one or more of the dancers who have volunteered their time to take professional dance lessons donated by the Fred Astaire Dance Studios to ‘step into the Spotlight’ to bring attention to the critical need for organ, tissue and eye donation. Voting can be done online before or during the event through the use of the BidPal website. Before you can vote/donate you must take a few minutes to set up an account and designate a method of payment. Then START VOTING for your favorite dancer! Or support the mission of the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin by selecting Destination Donation. The dancer with the most votes will win the People’s Choice award.
The music in the air might sound different for each dancer, but their purpose is the same – SAVE LIVES or IMPROVE LIFE for those living with chronic disease or conditions.
An evening of dancing, rivalry and fun!
