JDRF 2020 Vision Gala - Reno
To help our community stay healthy during the coronavirus pandemic, JDRF will be reimagining events through 6/30/20 rather than hosting in person gatherings – details to follow.

STAY TUNED – 2020 Vision Gala

April 25, 2020, Reno, NV
6:00 pm

Honoring Mr. Mark A. Krasner, CPA, ESQ, Blanchard, Krasner & French

Reserve your tickets and tables now to join us April 25th in the Reno Ballroom.

Event Details

  • While enjoying hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail reception, socialize and use the BidPal electronic bidding system on your smartphone 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 Fund A Cure.

    Fund A Cure provides an opportunity for all guests to support JDRF funded research.  The auctioneer will call out giving levels from $25,000 to $100.  Guests simply raise their bid paddle at the giving level they are most comfortable with and their 100% tax-deductible contribution will drive critical JDRF research priorities.

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.
