PLEASE NOTE: Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to postpone all JDRF events through June 30 out of an abundance of caution for the health, safety, and well-being of the JDRF and type 1 diabetes community. The newly rescheduled date for this year’s Gala will be Friday, October 16th, 2020.
