The Kidney Foundation of Ohio (KFO) Gala was called Una Noche Esplendida. The black-tie, Spanish-themed party drew nearly 300 supporters to the Downtown Marriott Hotel at Key Center. The benefit chairlady was Deborah Damas, who is the KFO board chair. A flamenco performance by Spanish Fairmount Dancers started off the evening, which was emceed by Stephanie Ramirez, of WEWS News Channel 5.

Dr. Edde Cinti was the recipient of the Person of the Year Award for his outstanding contributions to the renal community. Born in Italy, he came to the U.S. as an exchange student, obtained his BA at CWRU and went to medical school in Switzerland. Dr. Cinti’s interest in nephrology brought him back to Cleveland at a time when dialysis was in its infancy. Over the years, he worked in various capacities at several hospitals, and taught medical students and residents. He is president of Nephrology Associates of Cleveland.

The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Jack Burke in recognition of his longstanding dedication and leadership to the organization. He joined the KFO board in 1988. Mr. Burke spent the last 40 years of his career assisting clients with their investment needs, currently with Ancora Advisors, and he remains active in a number of civic and community affairs.
