We’re All Quite Mad Here

We refuse to believe a cure for our loved ones living with T1D is impossible!

Join us as we endeavor to find a cure in ONEderland at the 2018 Hope Ball on Saturday, April 28, 2018. The Hope Ball Committee is well underway to transforming our new venue, The Hotel duPont located in Wilmington, to a ONEderland we all dream about.

Don’t Be Late for a Very Important Date
Tickets are on sale now! The 2018 Hope Ball is expected to sell out, so please reserve your tickets soon either online or by calling (302) 888-11117.

All of the Best People are Bonkers
Join us on April 28 as a sponsor of the Hope Ball or purchase an individual ticket to attend. Ask your business to support the event through a sponsorship or help underwrite one of the magical features of the night. Sponsorship and underwriting opportunities start at $500. Individual tickets are $250 and a table of 10 seats is $2500. The event is black tie and creative attire is encouraged.

Best Auction Items Found Down the Rabbit Hole
Help the Committee continue to put on the most fabulous Silent and Live Auctions in the state! Ask your local businesses for a donation to the auction or, if you are a business, submit your donation online by clicking here. The Committee is looking for restaurant gift cards & dining experiences, gift baskets, sports memorabilia and tickets,  and unique items that would make the Queen of Hearts red with envy!

Curious as the Cheshire Cat

Every Adventure Requires a First Step
