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.

  • The JDRF Imagine Gala is Central Florida’s elegant black-tie affair benefiting type 1 diabetes. Join local, prominent business leaders and families from the community at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando for an evening of fundraising, celebration and community on October 27, 2018.
