Bring your friends and join in the 9th Annual Bonne Santé, a Wine and Food Showcase presented by The Westin Galleria, Dallas benefiting the National Kidney Foundation happening on Saturday, February 2, 2019.

Bonne Santé is the premier culinary and wine event featuring celebrity chefs from around the country raising funds to fight kidney disease and features  Food and Wine Showcase, unique tastings with wine pairings, silent and live Auction and live entertainment.

Bonne Santé was launched in the summer of 2010 by the National Kidney Foundation Serving Texas and William Koval, Executive Chef, Lakewood Country Club.  Each year this event has continued to grow with the support of our chefs and the community.   Chef Koval leaned on the National Kidney Foundation during a trying time when his son was born with only one kidney.  Today, with his healthy son, Nathan, by his side in the kitchen, Chef Koval is an avid support of the National Kidney Foundation.  The National Kidney Foundation is honored to be associated with Chef Koval in launching Bonne Sante’ and thanks him for his untiring efforts in making it a reality.


Two awards will be given at the event: The 2018 Burl Osborne Awareness Award which recognizes individuals and organizations which have helped advance awareness and understanding of kidneys, kidney disease, and organ donation and the 2018 Gift of Life Award which honors those involved in the ultimate “gift of life,” a lifesaving transplant. Those award recipients will be announced soon along with the listing of participating chefs and restaurants.
