The New York City Long Island Chapter of JDRF proudly presents The 46th Annual Promise Ball. We're delighted to announce that the gala will be held on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at the newly renovated Ziegfeld Ballroom.
As in years past, a distinguished member of the JDRF community will be recognized for their outstanding commitment to the mission and receive the Humanitarian of the Year Award. This year we are honored to recognize Heather and John Sargent and their daughter Schuyler as the 2018 Humanitarians of the Year.
Since its inception, The Promise Ball has raised more than $75 million to fund breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. With your support, we will continue to pioneer the efforts towards curing the disease once and for all.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and because of generous donor and partner support, we have been able to direct over $2 billion toward research. JDRF is an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. JDRF collaborates with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Our vision is to create a world without T1D. For more information, please visit jdrf.org or follow us on Twitter: @JDRF.
