PLEASE JOIN US
On behalf of the millions of people living with type 1 diabetes, we invite you to attend the ultimate party with a purpose. In the eyes of a child living bravely with type 1 diabetes, nothing could be more “Grand” than a cure!
JDRF invites you to be a part of the 14th Annual Promise Gala, A Cure Will Be Grand! Join us Saturday October 15th, at the Cedar Rapids Marriott, as we honor Kyle Skogman and the Skogman Companies for their support and commitment to our mission.
With more than 500 prominent guests, the Gala will feature a complimentary cocktail reception, classic dining experience, spectacular entertainment and signature live and silent auctions. We invite you to support this event and, most importantly, the research that will help find a cure.
As you read this, two amazing breakthroughs stand at the ready to change the world. The Artificial Pancreas, funded by JDRF, is projected to be on the market in the United States by early 2017. Encapsulated insulin-producing cells are currently being tested in human clinical trials and will revolutionize how people with T1D live and stay healthy as we work towards the biological cure. Locally, JDRF works tirelessly to provide the support and hope that families so desperately need.
You have the opportunity to help deliver the cure by supporting the Promise Gala and JDRF’s research efforts; there is no time to waste. With your support, history will record diabetes as the first non-infectious chronic disease to be eradicated.
Your support will help JDRF change the world.

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.
