Ora’s Alliance, benefiting the American Kidney Fund, is proud to present "Life Is What You Make It: A Concert and Conversation with Peter Buffett" in the Ford Theater of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
This is Peter’s second performance for Ora’s Alliance. Buffett performed earlier this month in Detroit Michigan, where he received a standing ovation after a thought-provoking evening of music and dialogue.
The Emmy Award-winning composer, best-selling author and philanthropist’s program combines multimedia and personal stories with a cello-accompanied live piano/vocal performance, to give the audience an authentic, inspirational and impactful evening. The event is the live companion to Buffett’s New York Times best-selling book, Life Is What You Make It, which former President Bill Clinton calls “a wise and inspiring book that should be required reading for every person seeking to find his or her place in the world.”
The event promises to be a captivating evening that will inspire the audience to follow passions over convention and do their bliss. By drawing upon his own life story and experiences, the Emmy Award-winning composer, philanthropist and author, discusses how important it is for each person to define his or her own path in life, regardless of their wealth or background. Buffett conveys that it is one’s values—and what people are able to give back to society—that shape and define us as individuals.
Dr. Greta Manning, founder of Ora’s Alliance, summarizes her mission, “It is our hope that this event will help in some small way to eradicate this devastating disease. I will not be satisfied, until we find a cure for this disease.”
Ora’s Alliance is a non-profit organization, committed to building public awareness of kidney diseases, providing funding for valuable research and supporting organizations that serve patients who suffer with end-stage kidney disease. The acronym ORA, denotes “obliterating renal aliments.”
Many of the 26 million Americans who suffer with chronic kidney disease do not have adequate insurance coverage to address their unique needs. The American Kidney Fund helps over 101,000 patients annually with dialysis related expenses, with 97 cents of every dollar spent going towards programs and services. Net proceeds of the event will benefit kidney patients in Tennessee.
