Chaired by Amanda & Robert Bezner
The 2014 JDRF Promise Ball
theme is “Party, Passion, Purpose”, and the black tie event will be held
at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort on Saturday, May 10th. This spring
will mark the 15th anniversary of San Antonio’s Promise Ball. Raising
more than $30 million since the inaugural event in 2000, the Promise
Ball remains a critically important vehicle to raise funds that support
research, treatment and prevention of Type 1 Diabetes.
Promise Ball guests
will enjoy an elegant cocktail party followed by a seated dinner. The
event boasts a Silent Auction powered by wireless handheld electronic
“BidPals”, once-in-a-lifetime Live Auction items, and a live
performance by Skyrocket. Most importantly, all guests will have an
opportunity to participate in the Fund A Cure program, where 100% of the
donations directly support diabetes research.
