Shining Stars of PKD. 

Cocktails for a Cure is a networking party designed to bring people together in a social atmosphere to meet and share their experiences, while raising awareness of PKD, and supporting the PKD Foundation. The event is about socializing and networking in a fun environment with great company, great food, and great live entertainment. This year the live entertainment will be provided by The Past Masters (, a classic rock band that performs the best of popular hits by various artists, including the Beatles, U2, Mellencamp, Van Halen, Springsteen, and many other artists.

Your support will fund critical research to discover a treatment and cure for polycystic kidney disease.  Join us for an evening of refreshing cocktails, delectable hors'deourves, and live entertainment by The Past Masters as we toast to a cure for PKD.
