The 2016 JDRF Promise Ball theme is:
Havana Nights - That Was Then, This Is Now
The annual black tie event will be held at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort on Saturday, April 9th. This spring will mark the 17th 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 (T1D).
Promise Ball guests will enjoy an elegant cocktail party followed by a seated dinner. The event will feature a top-of-the-line Silent Auction - powered by wireless bidding software on YOUR smartphone, exclusive Live Auction items, and a live performance by KOOL AND THE GANG! Most importantly, all guests will have the opportunity to participate in the Fund A Cure program - where 100% of the donations directly support diabetes research. If you cannot attend the Promise Ball, but still want to contribute to cutting-edge research, you can click on the link to the left to contribute to Fund A Cure.

We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
