The event was held at the Rochester Academy of Medicine, a gem of a venue in the Rochester area. We had fun exploring the place, which even has a secret room with a door disguised as a mirror in a staircase! Amaya Indian Cuisine did an amazing job catering the event with a full vegetarian indian dinner, and Cheesy Eddies provided mini cheesecakes and carrot cakes for dessert. Some great silent auction items were donated The Alan Murphy Trio and Madeline Cain played some great jazz music, keeping our ears happy during dinner and getting some people up to dance after the program was over!
For the program portion of the evening, I shared my story of how I got involved with the kidney disease project
To raise the remaining funds for the project, Elena, our new intern for this semester, and I are applying for grants for small scale sustainable agriculture projects.
