Come Fly With Us!

Come fly with us as we go back in time to the days of luxurious air travel and fine dining!

In partnership with our generous Gala Host Sponsor, Elite Jets, and the JDRF South Gulf Coast chapter, we are thrilled to invite everyone to come aboard for this in-person celebration on March 19th, 2022 at 6 pm. Upon departure, passengers will enjoy their favorite gala components in a unique and exclusive first-class setting as we “Let the Cure Take Flight.” The evening will include in-flight entertainment such as casino gaming, dancing, and our fabulous silent and live auctions, and of course, our heartwarming Fund A Cure program!

Meet the Chair!
We are so excited to announce that Jessica Shwedel will be our fearless leader and Gala Chair for the upcoming March 19th event! Many of you will recognize Jessica and her family from their participation in our last two galas; her daughter, Leah, stole the show in 2020 when she bravely shared her wish and invitation to the crowd to “kick diabetes’ butt, together, forever”. We are thrilled to be working with Jessica and can’t wait to share more details as they come!
