EJKF 2012 Donation Ceremony
Eva Jones Kidney Foundation Donates $1,847 dollars to the Division of Nephrology
On December 4, 2012 , the Division of Nephrology held the Eva Jones Kidney Foundation donation check ceremony in Gazes Auditorium. The Foundation was met with overwhelming Nephrology faculty and staff attendance. Introduced by Dr. John Arthur, Tonya Jones-Clark, daughter of Eva Jones and founder of EJKF, along with co-founders, MaryAnn Majcher and Kara Hinde, presented a check in the amount of $1847. The donation represents the proceeds raised from the Foundation’s inaugural 5K Run/Walk that was held on November 11, 2012. The monies raised from that race and future EJKF events are designated for MUSC Nephrology Divisional and Proteomics Laboratory research. During this event, it was announced that local painter Jon Donohue, owner of JMD Studio, partnered with the EJKF to help raise funds for the Division of Nephrology research. Mr. Donohue will donate 18% from the complete sale of his “The Carolina Wren” collection, a painting that was selected in honor of Eva Jones. Cookies and delicious cake prepared by MUSC’s Lisa Powell Knight were provided during the reception following the ceremony.
