Join Us at the 2019 JDRF Kansas City Dream Gala

Make plans now to join us for the 24th Annual JDRF Kansas City Dream Gala on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown, Muehlebach Tower. The generosity of our guests and supporters allows us to come together to further JDRF’s mission of finding a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D), a devastating disease that impacts the lives of children and adults in our community.

The JDRF Kansas City Dream Gala is attended by more than 800 members of our community, including some of the region’s leading business, civic and cultural leaders. This event has been recognized as the #1 Nationally Sponsored Event in Kansas City by The Independent magazine ten years in a row! In 2018, the Dream Gala raised over $1.8 million.

Guests enjoy exciting live and silent auctions, the opportunity to directly fund research through the Fund A Cure program, dinner, drink, and entertainment! Most importantly, your support of this event allows us to continue to deliver life-changing research advances at the rapid pace of the last few years.

We hope you will consider participating in one of the sponsorship opportunities. If you are unable to attend the event in person, a Fund A Cure donation would truly be appreciated and will be recognized at the event.
