in ,

WINTER PARK, October 2023 — Morgan & Morgan, America’s largest injury law firm, will be the presenting sponsor for the JDRF Northern Florida 2023 Orlando Gala, “Wines of the World,” on November 4, 2023. Alexander “Zander” Clem, an Orlando-based partner with the firm, brought Morgan & Morgan on board eight years ago to support JDRF’s mission when his son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D).

“JDRF is an organization that takes action to improve the quality of life for those living with T1D. I am grateful for their commitment to finding a cure and ensuring that it’s possible for those with this disease to one day live without the constant insulin injections and glucose monitoring devices. My partners at Morgan & Morgan have stepped up and locked arms with me in this battle to end the disease for my son and all those who also carry it with them every day,” said Clem.

This year marks the eighth year that Morgan & Morgan will serve as Presenting Sponsor of JDRF’s annual gala.  “We are incredibly grateful for Morgan & Morgan’s support,” says Colleen Saca, JDRF Northern Florida Chapter Executive Director. “Community partners like this ensure we can continue accelerating our mission to cure, treat, and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its complications.”

The event will include cocktails, dinner, competitive live and silent auctions, a special mission segment called Fund A Cure, followed by dancing and time with friends, old and new. To learn more about this year’s Gala, Wines of the World, visit jdrfnorthernfloridagala.com.
