The Cincinnatians of the Year Gala™ is held each year in May and attracts 800-900 attendees. Business Courier’s Book of Lists has ranked the Cincinnatians of the Year™ Gala #1 among non-profit fundraising galas in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. The Gala raises an average of one million dollars each year for JDRF.
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.
