On February 27th, we attended the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s 27th Annual Dream Gala at the Seattle Sheraton Hotel with Andrew Norris.
It was an extraordinary event that brought together more than 900 community leaders and committed JDRF supporters for an evening of fine dining, delicious local wines, stellar entertainment and an exciting auction!
Together, the JDRF has raised more than $63 million to fund research to prevent, treat and ultimately cure type 1 diabetes.
JDRF is the leading diabetes foundation funding T1D research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.
JDRF is currently sponsoring $530 million in scientific research in 17 countries. In 2012 alone, JDRF provided more than $110 million to T1D research.
