The JDRF Seattle Dream Gala is one of Seattle's largest fundraising Galas and one of the most prestigious events attracting 900 social elite and industry leaders from across the city. Celebrating 29 years in Seattle, the Dream Gala guest experience includes live and silent auctions while ending the night with fabulous dancing and entertainment.

Ways to Get Involved

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.
