10/03/08 - Tribe gives $150K to kidney foundation


The National Kidney Foundation of North Carolina has received its largest gift ever, a $150,000 sponsorship from Harrah’s Cherokee Casino & Hotel to support the Kidneyville Cruiser. The cruiser is a 48-foot mobile education and screening unit that will travel the state educating North Carolinians about chronic kidney disease. It will illustrate the link between the disease and its leading contributors, such as diabetes and hypertension.
