First and foremost, the Arizona Women’s Board would like to thank you for your support throughout the years. Because of you, we have raised more than $12 million over the past 40 years and these funds have directly impacted the quality of life for Arizonans with kidney disease.
Due to the current complexity of COVID 19 and its impact on our communities, both locally and nationally, we have made the decision to postpone our Arizona Women’s Board 41st Annual Authors Luncheon until November 6, 2021. This has been a difficult decision, primarily because of the impact on our funding of organizations we support. The mission of the Arizona Women’s Board is "commitment to prevent kidney disease through awareness, education and research, and to improve the quality of life for Arizonans with kidney disease". Now more than ever, because of the potentially devastating impact of COVID 19 on kidney patients, we look to you for support.
Although we are not able to host the Luncheon this year, your support means more than ever. With your donation now, we will be able to continue to serve those kidney patients most in need during this difficult time.
With any donation of $100 or more, you are invited to participate in a virtual “Conversation with Adriana & Friends” on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at 11 am MST. The link to this special gathering will be sent to you the week of the event. A “Door Prize” drawing, consisting of “Adriana’s Favorite Things”, will take place during the program.DONATE NOW TO SUPPORT
