JDRF is the leader of the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community unifying global efforts to CURE, TREAT, and PREVENT T1D. Through a transformative vision, breakthrough innovation and effective operations, we are inspiring tomorrow’s hope through today’s results.
The Promise Ball hosted in Phoenix, AZ and An Evening of Hope hosted in Tucson, AZ and Albuquerque, NM reflect the outstanding efforts and contributions of our volunteers, sponsors and staff to support diabetes research and to increase awareness of the seriousness of this disease. Guests enjoy a cocktail reception and silent auction, dinner, dancing, live auction and entertainment, as well as, our Fund-A-Cure auction.
Fund-A-Cure is a unique opportunity for you to donate to the mission of JDRF. Since its inception in 1970, JDRF has funded virtually every major breakthrough in diabetes research. The path to a cure for diabetes is as complex as the disease itself, but tremendous progress is being made every day and the goal is in site. Over the next five years, JDRF will accelerate the pace of medical progress through a bold new research program that will be aggressively goal-oriented and closely managed. At the Gala, you have the unique opportunity to become a direct part of this process. 100% of your Fund-A-Cure donation is tax deductible and goes directly to research.
Through your efforts and generous support we are accelerating the pace of scientific discovery for treatments to help people lead better lives while we search for a cure for our loved ones and the millions of people who live with T1D. By participating in The Promise Ball and An Evening of Hope, you are helping to make history, because together, we will fulfill JDRF’s mission.
