About Event

We invite you to join us for the JDRF DC Hope Gala on Saturday, October 27, 2018. We are excited to announce that this year’s event is being chaired by longtime JDRF supporters, Tamara and Steve Pann and will honor our friends at Total Wine & More. The Hope Gala will be an extraordinary evening with dinner, fast-paced auctions, and live entertainment followed by an exclusive after party. One hope. One vision. One night.

We hope you will accept our invitation to join in our efforts as we work to raise more than $2.2M for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.

The mission of JDRF is to progressively reduce the impact of T1D on people’s lives until we achieve a world without the disease. JDRF’s funding and leadership have led to most major scientific breakthroughs in T1D research to date. Based on financial efficiency, Forbes rated JDRF as one of the top five all-star charities worthy of your support. Monumental advances continue to be made that will lead us to a cure, but there is still work to be done.
