Event Details

  • While enjoying hors d’oeurves and a cocktail reception, socialize and use the BidPal electronic bidding system on your smartphone, or a handheld device provided by JDRF, to bid on the fabulous array of auction items.

  • As we pay tribute to this year’s honoree, guests will enjoy a gourmet dinner and dessert, wine, unique entertainment, dancing, and the ever popular live auction culminating with the Fund a Cure.

Ways to Give

Fund A Cure

Fund A Cure immediately follows the Live Auction portion of the evening. Fund A Cure is an opportunity to make an impact on the lives of people living with T1D and their loved ones through a 100% tax-deductible donation, which will accelerate life-changing research. Fund A Cure donations will be invested in JDRF’s effective and focused research agenda aimed to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until there is a cure.

About the Honorees

Eleven years ago, the Micatrotto family formed what today is called MRG Marketing & Management, the franchise partner for Raising Cane’s currently operating in Nevada and Arizona.

The founders, Joe Micatrotto Sr., Connie Micatrotto, Justin Micatrotto and Joe Micatrotto II, sought to procure a concept aligned with their goals and values. The family group took their years of experience in the restaurant industry and decided to form a restaurant management company focusing on exceptional guest service and quality food. When determining where to base MRG, it was decided Las Vegas provided the proper environment and great national exposure. While tourists dominate the Las Vegas perception, locals are what make it sustainable. Being a part of and understanding the Las Vegas community is at the heart of MRG.

Since forming in 2005, MRG has donated tens of thousands of dollars to their communities and have made Community Strong a cornerstone of the way they do business. The MRG Family views giving back with our heads, hearts, and hands, as an investment in the future stability and growth of our communities. MRG works on a daily basis to grow the brand, give back to their communities, and create a work culture that has no rival in the industry.

In the end, it’s all about their ONE LOVE®!
