Save the Date

On behalf of the millions of people living with type 1 diabetes, we invite you to attend the ultimate party with a purpose.  In the eyes of a child living bravely with type 1 diabetes, nothing could be more wonderful than a cure!

JDRF invites you to be a part of the 15th Annual Promise Gala, “One Night”! Join us Saturday October 14th at the Cedar Rapids Marriott, as we honor Jeff and Mary Beth Standerski for their support and commitment to our mission.

With more than 520 prominent guests, the Gala will feature a complimentary cocktail reception, classic dining experience, spectacular entertainment and signature live and silent auctions. We invite you to support this event and, most importantly, the research that will help find a cure.

As you read this, two amazing breakthroughs stand at the ready to change the world. The Artificial Pancreas, funded by JDRF, is available on the market in the United States, at this very moment. Encapsulated insulin-producing cells are currently being tested in human clinical trials and will revolutionize how people with T1D live and stay healthy as we work towards the biological cure. Locally, JDRF works tirelessly to provide the support and hope that families so desperately need.

You have the opportunity to help deliver the cure by supporting the Promise Gala and JDRF’s research efforts; there is no time to waste. With your support, history will record diabetes as the first non-infectious chronic disease to be eradicated.

Your support will help JDRF change the world.
