Please join us for the 24th Annual JDRF Kansas City Dream Gala on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown, as we come together to change the lives of every adult, child, and family facing the daily challenges of type 1 diabetes (T1D) in our community. T1D strikes millions of children and adults every day, without warning. Unrelated to diet or lifestyle, T1D creates a lifelong dependence on insulin injections or infusions and carries the constant worry of long-term complications including blindness, kidney disease, and stroke. There is no remission, no days off, and currently– no cure. But there is hope.
We know that a cure is possible, and we know that JDRF is the answer. JDRF funds incredible research to help make management of T1D less of a burden, keep those living with the disease healthy, and ensure future generations never know it. Our goal is to turn Type One into Type None, but we can’t do it alone.
The JDRF Kansas City Dream Gala is an event known for its elegance and its power to connect more than 800 members of our region’s leading business, civic and cultural leaders. The JDRF Dream Gala has been recognized as the #1 Nationally Sponsored Event in Kansas City by The Independent magazine ten years in a row!
We hope you will consider participating in this premier event through one of the sponsorship opportunities. In addition to opportunities to attend in person, a Fund A Cure donation would be most appreciated and will be recognized at the Dream Gala if you are unable to attend. Formal invitations will be sent March 2019 and we hope you can join us. Click Here for partnership information.
Thank you for your consideration. Your support allows every person living with T1D a chance to imagine a future free of worry.
