Mark your calendars – our 15th Annual Imagine Gala is Saturday, May 12, 2018 at The Beverly Hilton!
JDRF is proud to present the T1D Corporate Champion of the Year Award to American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Honda’s dedication to JDRF and its long-standing support for the communities where they work and live demonstrate the company’s commitment to making the world a better place. On January 1st, Honda lead the 129th Rose Parade with “Power of Dreams Express” and highlighted JDRF as a key philanthropic partner. Living up to their company motto of “being a company that society wants to exist,” Honda’s foundations and charitable giving support a range of local and national initiatives that address the education, health and well being of young people. Steve Morikawa, American Honda Vice President of Corporate Relations & Social Responsibility, will accept the award on the company’s behalf.
Andy Bales, CEO of Union Rescue Mission, is an incredibly deserving recipient of this year’s Spirit Award. Andy has supported the Los Angeles area for over 30 years through community outreach and services to individuals experiencing homelessness. As an individual with T1D, Andy fears that his children and grandchildren are at risk of developing the disease and is committed to JDRF’s mission.
Thanks to the dedication of hundreds of guests, donors, committee members, and volunteers, the Imagine Gala is a night of inspiration, hope and outstanding fundraising. Guests will enjoy our expansive silent and exciting live auctions, our signature Fund A Cure program, and world-class entertainment. This is one night you do not want to miss!
