Imagine a world without type 1 diabetes. A world where children (and parents) sleep through the night without fear. A day when an intelligent pump eliminates dangerous high and low blood sugars. A time when a single daily or weekly shot of insulin maintains tight blood sugar control with no carb counting. A life with no injections of insulin. The promise that no additional family members will develop type 1 diabetes. With your help, JDRF isn’t just imagining. We’re making it happen.

This year we recognize the wonderful fundraising success of our gala program, which has raised more than $3 million to date. Because of this success, we have funded world-class diabetes research that brings us closer to curing type 1 diabetes!

Our event, which will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2015 on the grounds of the home of Dan & Carolyn Heard in Baton Rouge, promises to be the most exciting one yet! We hope you will join us at our 14th Annual Gala for a great night filled with spectacular silent and live auctions, food, dancing and most importantly, a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Come and enjoy food and drink provided by Brew-Bacher’s Grill, Baton Rouge Coca-Cola Bottling Company, Drusilla Seafood Restaurant, Galatoire’s Bistro, Izzo’s Illegal Burrito, On the Half Shell, Sammy’s Grill, Cupcake Allie, Brew Ha-Ha, Mansur’s On The Boulevard, Beausoleil, Santa Fe Cattle Co. and more!
