2022 One Dream Gala Event Details

  • We are excited to announce our plans for an unforgettable return to the ballroom! The 2022 One Dream Gala will be held on Saturday, May 14, and as one of our largest annual events, we couldn’t envision a more inspirational backdrop than Bell Works in Holmdel, NJ.

    The history of Bell Works is rooted in innovation. Headquarters to Bell Laboratories, a research and development arm of AT&T, from 1962 to 2007, the building has been redeveloped into a mixed use “Metroburb” complete with offices, retail, dining, hospitality and more, including naturally flowing open spaces, a rooftop patio, and a beautiful ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking sprawling greenery and a sparkling pond.

    Also rooted in innovation is the ongoing research being funded by JDRF, through funds generously raised at events such as the One Dream Gala. This memorable evening will include a cocktail hour, seated dinner, live and silent auctions, and entertainment. Throughout the program, guests will celebrate the power of progress through stories of hope and resilience, advancements towards cures, and innovations to improve lives.

  • AUCTION
    The One Dream Gala auction is like none other! Featuring hundreds of packages, including one-in-a-lifetime experiences, luxury items, vacations, signed memorabilia and VIP access opportunities. This is an auction you won’t want to miss.

    BIDPAL
    BidPal electronic bidding will be used during the Gala’s silent auction. Guests may bid directly from their smartphone – anywhere and anytime!

    Watch this video to ensure you’re prepared to bid on all your favorite items on Gala night! If you have questions on this  feature, please contact Stacy DiArchangel.

    Bidding will open the week of Gala – you will receive a text message on how to start bidding. Bid early and often right from your fully charged smartphone!

    Can’t join us but still want to bid? Remote bidding will be available starting the second week of May.

  • Take a seat at your table, enjoy a delicious dinner and prepare to be inspired by incredible speakers as they share their stories, live auction and fund a cure.

  • Last chance to bid on all your favorite items before the auction closes!

  • Join us on the dance floor to celebrate the night’s success!

  • Thank you for showing up for the diabetes community and attending the JDRF One Dream Gala!

Ways to Get Involved

The past few years we have seen giant leaps in transplant immunology, autoimmune immunology, beta cell biology and technology treatments – unlike any we’ve ever seen in type 1 diabetes (T1D).

To build on these advancements, we must continue to up our game in order to realize our mission of creating a WORLD WITHOUT T1D. It’s our role to bring the best scientific minds, the best companies, the best investors and, of course, the most motivated donors in the world to our fight. Join us!

  • 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.

  • Purchase tickets and invite your friends, colleagues and family to join you for an unforgettable evening.

  • We are proud to work with purpose driven organizations that share our vision of a world free from T1D. View our sponsorship opportunities and purchase your sponsorship here. If you have any questions about sponsorship, please contact Maggie Ford.

  • There are many opportunities to get involved and support the event, including donating an item, gift certificate, gift basket, service or experience for our auction or raffle. Your donation to the auction directly helps further JDRF’s mission of creating a world without type 1 diabetes. If you have any questions about donating an auction item contact Stacy DiArchangel.

  • Volunteers are the driving force of our organization and together we can work to cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). All volunteers must attend a mandatory training session prior to the Gala. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Katie Budelmann.
