The JDRF One Dream Gala brings together over 2,000 philanthropists, community leaders, and corporate partners for an unforgettable evening featuring one-of-a-kind silent and live auctions, a sit-down dinner, award-winning live entertainment, and JDRF’s signature “Fund A Cure” program allowing guests to have a direct impact on life-saving research.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent it, and at present, there is no cure.
JDRF works every day to change the reality of this disease for millions of people—and to prevent anyone else from ever knowing it—by funding research, advocating for government support of research and new therapies, ensuring new therapies come to market and connecting and engaging the T1D community.
