In a news release, the Atlanta chapter of the PKD Foundation announced it will host its second Cocktails for a Cure event Saturday from 7 to 10 p.m. at Tongue & Groove in Lindbergh City Center in Buckhead

Participants will be part of an evening to help raise money to find a cure for polycystic kidney disease, which is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases affecting thousands in the U.S. and millions worldwide. The event will include music, catering by Chef Drew Ihrig at Endive, a silent auction and an opportunity to win a raffle prize.

“We are thrilled to host the [fundraiser] again this year,” said Marlene Stewart, PKD Atlanta chapter coordinator. “We invite the metro Atlanta community to help support this important cause by purchasing a ticket to attend or by making a monetary donation online, which will help fund vital research to find a treatment and cure for polycystic kidney disease.”

Tickets purchased online are $25 for single admission (one drink ticket) or $40 per couple (two drink tickets) and $30 for single admission (one drink ticket) or $45 per couple (two drink tickets) the night of the event.
