2021 JDRF Georgia Hope Gala: Celebrating Progress

May 1, 2021
7:00 pm

For 25 years, the JDRF Hope Gala has been an annual, premiere event bringing people together to celebrate the tenacity and courage displayed by the T1D community, while raising critical funds for T1D research. Although we cannot be together in person this year, we invite you to celebrate with us from your home to show the world that when faced with challenges, we remain unstoppable in our fight to find a cure for T1D. The JDRF Hope Gala: Celebrating Progress will be livestreamed on Saturday, May 1, 2021 to allow our guests to stay safe and celebrate from home. This year’s event will include exciting auction items, hosted watch parties, signature cocktails, and a live online community celebration. You can support the Hope Gala through corporate sponsorship, being a table host with a twist, donating to Fund a Cure, or donating/bidding in our auction.

Ways to Support

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.

  • Sponsoring the Hope Gala offers your company unique marketing and branding opportunities, alongside supporting your business’s philanthropic and charitable goals.
