Promise Ball- Through the Looking Glass on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Marriott Marquis Houston
Ambassadors play a significant role in the evening’s festivities by helping welcome guests and assisting with special portions of the ballroom programing at this black tie event which raised more than $1.6 million for JDRF funded research last year. Each Ambassador’s presence is an opportunity to help raise awareness about type 1 and thank the generous Gala patrons who are helping JDRF fund a cure through their support of the Promise Ball.
There are a limited number of spots available each year for Gala Youth Ambassadors, so participants are selected through an application process via committee. Applications and photos are due no later than Wednesday, January 24, 2018. All applicants will be notified January 26, 2018.
