JDRF Greater Bay Area Chapter 2014 Hope Gala
Event Phone Number: 415.977.0360
600 Stockton St.
San Francisco CA
This May, JDRF Greater Bay Area Chapter will host the 2014 Hope Gala, bringing prominent business leaders and families from around the Bay Area to The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco for an evening of fundraising, celebration, and networking. The event will benefit JDRF and type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Last year the Hope Gala raised more than $1 million. Now in its 16th year, the Hope Gala has become a top charity event in the Bay Area.
Each year, the JDRF Greater Bay Area Chapter selects an individual or organization to be honored with the Living & Giving Award, presented at the Hope Gala. The 2014 honoree, Gretchen de Baubigny, was selected for her exceptional commitment to the health, well-being and enrichment of the Bay Area community.
Celebrity chef and television personality, Sam Talbot will emcee the event. Mr. Talbot was diagnosed with T1D at age twelve and is a dedicated advocate for JDRF. He will perform a cooking demonstration on Saturday, May 31 at Draeger’s Cooking School in San Mateo to create more awareness about T1D and provide additional fundraising for the Hope Gala.
