JDRF Gala Raises $1.4 million to Cure Type 1 Diabetes
The Greater Dallas Chapter of JDRF hosted its 20th annual Dream Gala on April 9 at the Omni Dallas Hotel in downtown. IPS Advisors was proud to be among the sponsors again this year and extends a special thank you to Stealth Partner Group, Aetna and Tolleson Wealth Management for contributions.
The black-tie gala raises money to support JDRF, a global nonprofit that funds type 1 diabetes research with the goal of eradicating the disease. Fundraising for this year totaled $1.4 million.
“This is a cause near and dear to my heart and the hearts of other team members at our firm who also have children with type 1 diabetes. We are honored to support JDRF and their mission to progressively treat, prevent, and ultimately cure the disease,” comments Randall Martell (HIA, MHP, CBC), Managing Partner at IPS Advisors.
The evening included a reception, silent auction, dinner and a live auction followed by Fund a Cure, a separate fundraiser. The YouTube video for Fund a Cure can be seen here: http://bit.ly/1SbNwxN
