MAY 1, 2021 – 7:00 PM


Gala leaders, volunteers and staff are feeling the excitement build as we make plans for another memorable and successful virtual Hope Gala on May 1.  We are so grateful to have the opportunity to honor Chris and Dana Moore and FNB and know they will make an impact on our mission as they reach out to their colleagues and friends in support of JDRF.


We are thinking BIG and BOLD as we procure fun auction items.  If you’ve been thinking about a new puppy, look no further as we will have an adorable golden doodle in the Live Auction.  Other items of interest include great bourbons, beautiful art, fun trips, virtual wine tastings, and for the first time ever – an hour with an astronaut!  REGISTER HERE so you will receive a text message when our Auction opens on April 26!


New this year is our Gala Watch Party.  Invite friends and family (within CDC guidelines) to watch the LIVE virtual Hope Gala with you.  It will be more fun together.  You will receive a festive party starter kit delivered to your home to kick off the evening.  Click HERE to learn more!


It’s not late to sign up to be a corporate sponsor of the Gala.  There are lots of creative virtual benefits available with all of the sponsor packages.  Please reach out to Mitzi if you are interested at


One of our favorite parts of the Gala night is our Fund A Cure program where guests will have the opportunity to make on impact on the lives of our loved ones living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) through a 100% tax-deductible donation.  Your generous contribution will drive research toward critical JDRF research priorities.


We can’t wait “to see” everyone on Saturday, May 1!  Please reach out to Sarah Cunningham at or Mitzi Ellis at if you have any questions.
