William the Conqueror vanquished Harold, and now it's time for a party.
Harold, you may remember, was Chris Strouth's diseased kidney. It was killing him. William the Conqueror was one of Scott Pakudatis' healthy kidneys. He donated it to Strouth. The two connected after Strouth Tweeted about his dilemma and Pakudatis stepped forward. They barely knew each other, but they broke bread together last Thanksgiving before an operation at the University of Minnesota.
Tonight they'll both be on hand for "New Kidney on the Block" at the 501 Club. Fittingly, invitations to the event went out via Facebook, where Strouth wrote extensively about his illness and recovery:
On Tuesday, February 23rd join Chris and Guest of Honor Scott Pakudatis, along with their friends, families and supporters for a rockin' party at the 501 Club! Featuring awesome drink specials and music from DJ Jake Rudh, DJ Drone, Joseph Pettini, and Dean Vaccaro.
See you there.
