Because of your generous support, our Hope Gala reached a new milestone - exceeding $5 Million since the inaugural gala!
The 10th Anniversary Hope Gala ~ Hope Blooms was one of the most anticipated black-tie events of the triangle and this special, anniversary year will be remembered for a long time to come! From the Champagne lady to the live statues and even the singers and performers... there were many exciting entertainment surprises! The Auction was the highest grossing auction in the history of the gala raising over $170,000! The highlight of the live auction was when the Pixar Preview Gala and the NFL Commisioner experience sold twice - thanks to generous donors in the room!! Of course the most memorable part was Heath Clayton's moving Fund A Cure speech which brought a standing ovation! We can't say thank you enough to all our amazing volunteers, sponsors and donors who helped make this another successful gala and most importantly, for helping JDRF send over $830,000 to research!!
Please save the date for next year's 11th Annual Hope Gala! Saturday, April 26, 2014.
