JDRF Houston invites you to apply to become a Gala Youth Ambassador at the 2017 Promise Ball- Havana Nights on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at The Hilton Americas Hotel. Ambassadors play an important role in the evening’s festivities by helping to greet guests and assisting with special portions of the ballroom programing at this event which raised more than $2.8M for JDRF-funded research last year. Each Ambassador’s presence is an opportunity to help raise awareness about T1D and thank the generous Gala patrons who are helping JDRF find a cure through their support of the Promise Ball.
There are a limited number of spots available each year for Gala Youth Ambassadors, so participants are selected through an application process via committee. Applications and photos are due no later than February 17, 2017. All applicants will be notified February 24, 2017.
