ABOUT THE GALA The JDRF Hope Gala is a black-tie fundraising dinner that benefits the JDRF Florida Suncoast Chapter. More than 300 prominent philanthropic community leaders join JDRF for a seated dinner, silent and live auctions and live entertainment. Our 2015 event combined with the Lucas Cup Pro-Am raised more than $1.1 million for T1D research and we hope to surpass that amount this year.
ABOUT JDRF JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes 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 bring life-changing therapies from the lab to the T1D community. With the generous help of our supporters, JDRF is pursing a diversified, dynamic research agenda aimed at moving us even closer to a world without T1D.

FUND A CURE Fund A Cure is an opportunity to make a direct impact on the lives of people living with T1D through a 100% tax-deductible donation in support of JDRF’s mission.

We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
