The black tie event will include a cocktail reception, a multi-course dinner, silent and live auctions, entertainment, and JDRF’s signature Fund A Cure program—in which 100 percent of tax-deductible contributions drive research for artificial pancreas technology, beta cell replacement therapies, and other critical JDRF research priorities. The JDRF Seattle Guild Dream Gala is the premier gala in Seattle, and one not to be missed. Proceeds from the event will go toward research focused on curing, preventing and treating T1D.

“Everyone who comes out to support the event will bring us one step closer to turning Type One into Type None. Whether you know someone affected by type 1 diabetes or not, your support will help give hope and relieve some of the burden of people with T1D and their families,” said Deniz Satir, Executive Director. “We are grateful for the incredible support of all sponsors, donors,  and guests of the JDRF Dream Gala, who are helping us fund important T1D research for the 1.25 million Americans with this serious disease. We are confident that together, we can reach our vision of a world without T1D.”
