Summer Classic

September 13, 2019, Livermore, CA
9:30 am - 11:30 pm

This is the 14th anniversary of this fun and festive event hosted by JDRF. Starting with an amazing day of golf among the vines followed by an evening under the stars with cocktails and silent auction, a truly gourmet dinning experience and live auction, and culminating with blow out music and dancing under the stars. JDRF Summer Classic, previously known as Drive for the Cure, was founded in 2006 by Active Charity in partnership with JDRF. Since inception, this event has brought together committed volunteers and supportive members of the community, raising over $5 million for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. All proceeds from Summer Classic benefit JDRF. This event includes 144 Golf Classic golfers and more than 400 BackSwing Bash evening attendees from the Greater Bay Area, specifically the East Bay who are contributing and supportive members of the JDRF family and local community. Please come and join us help us put the fun in fundraising.
