Supporters of JDRF joined together on Saturday, May 12th at the Chase Center on the Riverfront to raise awareness and money to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. Approximately 500 guests attended the event – Lights! Camera! Take Action! – which was set to an old Hollywood glamour theme. More than $420,000 was raised for research to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes and its complications.
“This event was extraordinary due to the hard work and passion of volunteers like Event Chair Linda Rudnick, Co-Chairs Marie DiPrinzio and Stacy Adams and our tremendous corporate partners: Wawa, Corn Products, Walgreens, Pennco Tech, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Delaware, Dr. & Mrs. Gary Wingate, Doctors for Emergency Services, Mr. & Mrs. Ed Matthews and many others who support JDRF year round,” said Amanda Foxman, director of the Delaware Branch of the JDRF. ”I am confident our mission to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes will become a reality thanks to this kind of community involvement.”
