2010 Gala Finding A Cure: A Love Story

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make the 2010 Gala a success! This event would not have been possible without all of the hard work and dedication from so many volunteers and JDRF supporters. We want to give a special thanks to Mitchell and Nina Quaranta, and Terry and Louise Gregg who have made a lifelong commitment to raising money and awareness for this cause. If you missed this year's Gala, you can view the videos on both the Quaranta family and the Gregg family right here on this blog.

The Caregiver award, which was given to the Quaranta's this year, honors someone who has served or serves as a caregiver to a loved one having diabetes or other auto-immune diseases and has set an example of loving care in our community. The Angel award, which the Gregg’s were recipients of this year, was created by the children and parents of the JDRF to show their sincere gratitude for the courageous efforts put forth by significant individuals who are helping to find a cure for diabetes. Thank you to both families for helping to make this year's Gala one of the most successful in JDRF LA's history!

We would also like to give a very special thank you to all of the volunteers that helped make the event such a success. With a showing of 665 guests in attendance on Gala night, volunteers helped ensure that everything from guest registration and check-in to the silent auction went off without a hitch. The night would not have run as smoothly without you! Thank you to the Beverly Hilton Hotel for the great food and to Billy Ray Cyrus for the awesome show! and every single item in our silent auction and live auction was sold!
We are proud to report that through all of our combined efforts both leading up to the event and on the night of, the JDRF LA Gala raised a total of $1.2 million dollars! Everything in our silent and live auctions sold (at 93% of value!!) and money is still coming in through Fund a Cure gifts. If you weren’t able to make it to this year’s event, you can still show your support by giving a Fund a Cure gift in any amount you wish. 100% of your gift goes directly towards research. Of the money raised this year, $257,350 was raised through Fund a Cure pledges on the night of the event only! Imagine the kind of progress we could make if we raised that kind of money every night and not just on Gala night!
