The Hope Gala is JDRF’s most high profile networking opportunity and most successful annual fundraiser in the Greater Bay Area. Join NBC’s Sam Brock and Telemundo’s Gabriela Dellan at this black tie event on May 21, 2016. The event includes a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, presentation of the Living & Giving Award, a gourmet dinner, dancing, and the YLC After Party. With over 400 attendees, the Hope Gala is a fun and inspirational event that offers supporters the opportunity to be socially conscious community leaders who help turn Type One into Type None.
Each year, the Living and Giving Award is presented to individuals or organizations who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to JDRF. The 2016 Honoree, Chara Schreyer, was selected for her extraordinary support of type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. More than thirty years ago, Chara’s daughter Justine was diagnosed with T1D at the age of four. Since then, Chara has been dedicated to accelerating the pace of life-changing research for all those affected by T1D. She is president of Kadima Foundation which also contributes to JDRF and funded the Justine K. Schreyer Endowed Chair in Diabetes Research at the UCSF Diabetes Center and the Justine Kathryn Schreyer Diabetes Care Center at UCSF.
