About

The JDRF Triangle Hope Gala was once again record-breaking for a third year in a row!  Thanks to you, our amazing supporters, we put a “two” in front of our total this year.

$2M+ and we are so grateful.

We cannot thank our event leadership team enough and everyone else who worked tirelessly to make this total a reality.  You made this a reality so one day soon T1D will no longer be anyone’s reality.

Auction Rules

Bidding on the Silent Auction items will be through the Greater Giving Mobile Bidding Platform. Any Live Auction bidding will occur live at the Gala. All bids are final and non-retractable. There will be no exchange or refund on items unless otherwise specified. We accept cash, check, Discover, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. DAF payments are not allowed for auction items.

Please carefully check envelopes containing gift certificates before leaving. JDRF is not responsible for replacing gift certificates lost after you leave the event. JDRF is under no obligation to extend, modify or change items or restrictions on items/certificates. Please pay careful attention to all condition, restrictions, and expirations on items and services. Unless otherwise stated, gift certificates exclude alcohol, tax and gratuity. Unless otherwise noted, all auction items and services must be used within one year of the 2024 Triangle Hope Gala.  We appreciate your strict observance of these restrictions, as future donations depend upon it. 

JDRF cannot ship alcohol. You must be 21+ to purchase any package with alcohol items included.

Dates for all trips and similar events must be mutually arranged with donor, unless noted. All reservations should be made at least one month in advance. All tickets in travel packages are for coach travel, unless otherwise specified. No refunds are permitted for canceled, lost, or unused tickets and/or accommodations. Airline blackout dates apply to all tickets, regardless of airline, unless specifically noted. Blackout dates are subject to change. Tickets cannot be reissued or refunded. 

All completed sales from this event are considered transactions solely between the purchaser and the donor of the auction item. All gift card usage is the responsibility of the buyer. Although the gift card and amount is currently valid, JDRF is not responsible for unused gift cards at businesses that may cease to operate before the expiration date. Auction items may not be transferred from the original buyer to another auction outside of JDRF without prior written consent from the donor.

JDRF has endeavored to catalogue and describe the auction items correctly online, in the ballroom, and the electronic bidding devices, but all items are sold “as-is”. No statements contained in the program or made orally at the sale or elsewhere shall be deemed a warranty, representation or assumption of liability. Bidders should carefully note the specific restrictions, conditions, and expiration dates for items purchased. Items depicted in the slide presentation, auction display and on electronic devices are for illustration purposes and may not be actual auction items.

JDRF reserves the right to withdraw any item from sale.

entry. There will be 150 entries available for the sweepstakes in total.
