34th Annual Boston Gala

May 14, 2016, Boston, MA
6:00 pm

The New England Chapter of JDRF will host the 34th Annual Boston Gala— a black-tie event that brings together more than 600 guests. The evening features an exciting silent and live auction, with one of-a-kind opportunities, of which we hope you will be a part. Our goal for the Gala is to raise $1.75 million for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Please join us for One Night where we will celebrate how far we have come toward the One Day when we will celebrate 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.
