Join the JDRF Hampton Roads Chapter this year for The Hope Gala. More than 275 guests, including many of Virginia’s elite philanthropists and corporations, will gather at the Westin Town Center in Virginia Beach for cocktails, dinner, silent and live auctions, and live entertainment – all to help JDRF cure, treat, and prevent type 1 diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a devastating disease that strikes children and adults suddenly and lasts a lifetime.

JDRF is the global leader in funding T1D research and since it’s inception in 1970, has funded virtually every breakthrough in diabetes research. It was created – and is still led – by people with a personal connection to T1D.  That gives us an unrelenting passion and commitment to work to remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we ultimately cure the disease and achieve a world without T1D.
