Known for its exquisite live and silent auction, the JDRF One Hope Ball is the area’s premiere black tie event. This event sells out every year and offers wonderful corporate networking opportunities. Sponsorship opportunities start at just $3,000.
Please contact Denise Nicastro at email@example.com to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
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.
Our 2022 Fund A Cure family is The Hover Family. In August, 7 year old Nolan was diagnosed. Nicole, Nolan’s mom, says “My husband and I both cried the first time we had to hold him down to inject him. Today, just 7 months later, he is happy. The light that once hid from his eyes has returned. Thanks to the amazing technology available today we have been able to achieve the best control we possibly can.” Technology only available thanks to JDRF research.
JDRF has played a key role in the discovery and availability of nearly every major T1D advancement and we can’t stop now. Future breakthroughs start with us and JDRF needs us now more than ever! Every dollar raised through Fund A Cure gets us closer to a world without T1D.
