    Gala Co-Chairs

    Lisa and Richard, both lawyers, have 2 daughters and live in Baltimore County, Maryland. Their older daughter Alex is an engineering student at Case Western Reserve University.  Jocelyn, their younger daughter who is now 15, was diagnosed with T1D at age 11 – since that diagnosis, Lisa and Richard have been deeply involved in Jocelyn’s care and heavily focused on technological advancements that help make Jocelyn’s daily routine less taxing.  Lisa spends time assisting parents of newly diagnosed children.  Richard has been a JDRF Board Member for 2 years with a major focus on the Gala and Walk events.  Their dream is for T1D patients to be able to make use of technological and pharmaceutical advancements to make their daily lives near-normal while a moonshot cure is developed.

Ways to Give

Fund A Cure

Fund A Cure immediately follows the Live Auction portion of the evening. Fund A Cure is an opportunity to make an impact on the lives of people living with T1D and their loved ones through a 100% tax-deductible donation, which will accelerate life-changing research. Fund A Cure donations will be invested in JDRF’s effective and focused research agenda aimed to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until there is a cure.
