Ensure the Gala is for a Cure
Congratulations to everyone who helped make the Seattle Dream Gala a big success. The event raised $3 million, making it one of the largest T1D fundraising events in the United States.
Whether or not you attended the Dream Gala, we all wish this money will be used to find a cure for T1D. However, in order to make sure that the money is used for T1D cure research, we need to take action.
Today, only a minority of funds raised at galas are actually used to fund research projects. Please see the infographic below.
Ensuring that your gift is used for research is as easy as speaking up. Email JDRF staff and or senior executives. Call the office. Write a note to event organizers. Join us in helping to restore focus on cure research.
