Santa Lucia LFR & The Juvenile Diabetes Research Fundation Gala Fundraiser.
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Fundation Nanaimo/Parksville area announced Santa Lucia LFR will be entertainment the VIP guests for Annual Fundraiser Gala held in Tigh-Na-Mara Resort Parksville, BC.
Every year, JDRF invites our families, volunteers, donors, partners, and sponsors to attend local Galas in communities across Canada. On this evening, thousands of JDRF supporters come together for an amazing event, raising funds and celebrating the achievements that have been made in diabetes research.
All JDRF Galas guests enjoy a delectable formal dinner, entertainment, dancing, silent and live auctions, and JDRF’s exciting Fund A Cure auction. More than 3,500 people attended JDRF Galas in 2012, raising more than $2.9 million. Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you at our Gala Nov 2nd 2013.
For over 40 years, JDRF has been a global leader in the search for an end to type 1 diabetes (T1D), through both research funding and advocacy. During that time, we have always talked about a cure as a singular destination: a return to normal physiology. But today, we realize that we are engaged in a process of curing T1D – that a cure is not just a destination but also a journey along a path. And we recognize that a part of our mission must be to help those living with T1D today to live healthier, easier, and safer lives until we arrive at the end of that path.
JDRF’s research is committed to improving the lives of every person with T1D and to curing this disease. Since its founding in 1970 (1974 in Canada), JDRF has funded more than $1.7 billion (U.S.) in T1D research and has dramatically advanced the T1D scientific frontier and the management of this disease. In FY2012 alone, JDRF provided more than $110 million (U.S.) for T1D research..
