Kathy Dreusicke arranged for Brad Little, Broadway's Phantom of the Opera to give a performance in Iowa City. She had a post performance fundraiser that benefited Kidneeds. The Benefit committee included (from left) Cindy Postler, Pat Cone-Fisher, Kathy Dreusicke and Keisha Boysen; Lynne Lanning is also shown in front of Brad Little. What a fabulous performance and benefit!
For her Bat Mitzvah, Alexandra Tully had friends sign Get Well quilts and pillows for patients with C3G who could use something comforting. They arrived the same day Jenna broke her leg in February! Since then, they have been shipped to patients all over the US. Alex has a cousin with C3G and this was her very thoughtful way of helping others. If you know of a C3G patient who might like a quilt or pillow, please let us know at kidneedsmpgn@yahoo.com.
Randi and Gary Levitz, along with Iowa author Don Harstad, donated a dinner to a silent auction to raise money for Kidneeds.

Steve McGuire (with Jenna) rode the Tour Divide for Kidneeds - that's 2411 miles. Outside Magazine calls it the most difficult off-road bike race in North America. And he did it twice.
