20th Anniversary JDRF Dream Gala Raises Over $410K for Type 1 Diabetes Research
Over 450 guests attended the Roaring 20th Anniversary JDRF Dream Gala (www.jdrf.org) on Saturday, April 7 at Embassy Suites-Lincoln where a record-setting $410,000 was raised to fund research towards better treating, preventing, and ultimately curing type 1 diabetes (T1D). JDRF is grateful to everyone who supported the event! Because of you, children and adults living with T1D will have access to new, life-changing technologies that will make managing the disease easier and safer for them, and their loved ones. You have given families across Nebraska the tools, hope, and resources they need to make them feel supported and backed by our caring community!
The Lincoln and Greater Nebraska Chapter staff and board of directors sincerely appreciate all of the people who made the 20th Anniversary Dream Gala a huge success, including each and every guest, auction donor, and volunteer. Special thanks are extended to the following 2018 Cure Champions: Ameritas, Kimberly Burhoop, The Christensen Charitable Foundation, Horizon Bank, Nebraska Bank of Commerce along with The Lee and Debbie Stuart Family Foundation, and Nelnet for their leadership in creating a world without T1D.
