JDRF Illinois One Dream Gala–Close to Home

December 12, 2020, throughout, IL
6:00 pm

Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 12, 2020 and help open doors to a world free from type 1 diabetes (T1D). Last year's JDRF Illinois One Dream Gala raised a record-breaking $7.1 million for T1D research. Although this year's event may look a little different, we know that together, even from our homes, we can continue to break records for the millions living with T1D. The fight for T1D cures continues and your support is more crucial than ever. Stay tuned for more exciting details on this reimagined Gala.
