Join us for our Spring Gala Experience: Stronger Together, an Evening of Hope

April 17, 2021
6:30 pm

Presented by Hydrite Chemical Company

In a virtual setting, we will continue our annual tradition of an outstanding auction, record-breaking fundraising, and a night of inspiration! Please take note of our April 1st deadlines in the "Ways to Give" section.

Event Details

  • Join us with your signature drink recipe in hand for a pre-show cocktail room

  • Sit back and enjoy the show! All guests will be sent a link to the show a few days prior.

  • The auction and drawing ticket sales will begin on Monday April 12, and will close at 7:30 PM on Saturday April 17.

    Make sure you’ve put in your winning bids and purchased your drawing tickets before then for a chance to win Festival Foods groceries for a year!

  • You won’t want to miss the famous comedian’s one-of-a-kind performance for our spring gala event. Make sure you have a ticket or be part of a sponsorship or table host group to gain access to the show and see Charlie perform.

Ways to Give

Fund A Cure

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.

  • Every sponsorship package includes digital access to the JDRF Gala, auction bidding access, and an invite to Charlie Berens’ show. Additional benefits increase as higher packages are purchased!

    In order to receive full benefits, all sponsorship packages must be purchased by April 1st.

Purchasing a table host package includes 10 individual entrance tickets into the event, which includes remote bidding access, and access to the Charlie Berens show.
