Gala Chair, Amber Davis, along with her committee are planning an amazing event for the 2024 JDRF ONE Night Hope Gala Saturday, February 24 beginning 6:00PM at The Westin Jackson. Fund A Cure family Forrest and Julie Johnson will be sharing their story during the evening. JDRF is accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat type one diabetes (T1D) and its complications. The event will include a cocktail reception, multi-course sit-down dinner, silent and live auctions, JDRF’s signature Fund A Cure – a program in which all funds raised go directly to T1D research, and The After-Party where guests enjoy drinks, dancing, late night bites and entertainment.
Our goal this year is to raise more than $350,000 for research to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs for type 1 diabetes on the way to finding a cure for this disease. Every dollar raised will help lighten the burden on 1.25 million Americans with type 1 diabetes and help us realize our vision of a world without T1D.
More than 100 JDRF Galas take place each year in the United States, bringing together thousands of people who are inspired by JDRF’s mission. As a signature JDRF fundraising event, the JDRF Gala Program has raised more than one billion for life-changing T1D research—research that has led to breakthrough discoveries, many of which have already moved into clinical trials and real-world testing. Although there has been considerable progress, there is so much more we have yet to accomplish.
