The JDRF Hope Gala is a black-tie fundraising dinner that benefits the JDRF Greater Chesapeake and Potomac Chapter. More than 550 prominent philanthropic community leaders join JDRF for a seated dinner, silent and live auctions and live entertainment. Our 2014 event raised a record $750,000 for T1D research and, with your support, we hope to surpass that amount this year.
Thank You to Our Sponsors
We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
