JDRF Sets Goal of $20K for 20th Dream Gala
With your help, JDRF Lincoln and Greater Nebraska (https://www2.jdrf.org) has the remarkable opportunity to make twice the impact for the 20th Anniversary Dream Gala, being held on Saturday, April 7 at Embassy Suites – Lincoln.
This year’s Gala Chair, Mrs. Kimberly Burhoop, has lived with type 1 diabetes (T1D) for nearly 16 years. In honor of the 20th Dream Gala, Kimberly has set up a community-wide challenge to raise $20,000 before the event date. If that weren’t generous enough, she will be matching every donation made, dollar for dollar, up to the $20,000 goal!
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone people need to get energy from food. T1D strikes both children and adults, and its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is currently nothing you can do to prevent it, and there is no cure. By supporting JDRF Lincoln and Greater Nebraska – you can help change this reality for the 1.25 million Americans, including approximately 6,500 Nebraskans living with this disease. Double your donation and join JDRF in raising $40,000 towards creating a world without T1D!
Contributions can be mailed to the JDRF Lincoln and Greater Nebraska office, located at 1650 S. 70th Street, Suite 201, Lincoln, NE 68506 or made online at www2.jdrf.org/goto/20for20.
