Please join us on Saturday, June 11, 2016 at Pixar Animation Studios for the Gala Preview of the latest Disney•Pixar film, Finding Dory. The net proceeds from this event will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
JDRF is very important to us as our son Sam has been living with type 1 diabetes for more than fifteen years. Each day he is faced with the responsibility of managing his blood glucose levels with at least ten finger sticks. As parents we will do anything to ensure that Sam can live a strong and healthy life, which is why we continue to partner with JDRF to find a cure.
We invite you to join us to find a cure for all people afflicted by diabetes. Attendees to the Gala Preview will enjoy an elegant black tie dinner, silent and live auctions, screening of Finding Dory, dessert reception, and an exclusive Pixar Animation Studios campus experience. It promises to be an unforgettable evening.
We believe that JDRF, whose mission is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research, will find a cure for Sam and the millions of others who suffer from this disease and that diabetes will one day be a disease of the past.

We're the stop at nothing type
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.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
