9th Annual Star City Denim & Diamonds Gala
Forty years ago, a small group of parents incapable of accepting a future with diabetes founded the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). In 1970 these parents made a promise to their children ... a promise to raise money and invest it wisely in research. To this day, their hopes and dreams are unwaivering, as JDRF has awarded more than $1.5 billion to diabetes research worldwide.
You can help JDRF continue the mission to cure type 1 diabetes by supporting the Greater Blue Ridge Chapter's 9th Annual Star City Gala Denim & Diamonds Gala. The gala will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at The Shenandoah Club at 5:30 p.m. If you can't attend the event, please consider donating an item to be auctioned off or making a Fund A Cure gift.
