Plan your own Event!

All of the events that take place in the Nashville PKD Foundation Chapter, large or small, only happen because someone decided to organize them. We are always receiving checks for $50 to $500 from people who have put together a craft fair, bake sale, gotten their business to sponsor a casual day or any of a dozen other things. 

There are also people who have decided they have the time and energy to put on a major event or who are connected to church or school group who help them put on a major event. Many other charities are starting to connect with sororities, fraternities, or other social organizations to put on an annual event and you can too!

If you have an idea for an event that you would like to put together, or if you have a business, church or community group that may like to get involved, please contact us at nashvillechapter@pkdcure.org and we'll help you get the ball rolling.
