Party Pics This Week ~ The JDRF Hope Gala

We just got our hands on some party photos from the October Hope Gala, which raised $2.1 Million for the JDRF of Greater Western Carolinas. Held at the Westin Charlotte on Saturday, October 22nd, the black tie evening was a rousing success, with over 700 Charlotte community leaders enjoying the cocktails, seated dinner, silent and live auctions and live entertainment.

About JDRF: 

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.
