On Saturday, November 7, 2015, JDRF (formerly Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) is hosting their annual black-tie gala at the Signature Flight Support’s hanger in Scottsdale to raise money for research that will progressively remove the impact of type 1 diabetes (T1D) from people’s lives.

The “Promise Ball” begins at 6 p.m. and offers a full evening of live entertainment, live and silent auctions, as well as an after party featuring a DJ and cigar rollers. The emcee for this year’s event dubbed “Mission Possible” is local FOX10 TV personality, Cory McCloskey, and the entertainment is legendary comedian, actor and talk show host, Arsenio Hall individual tickets for the event start at $500 and sponsorships are still available. Funds raised go toward local community outreach and world-wide diabetes research aimed at delivering a cure for T1D and its complications.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding diabetes research and the money raised supports research that is translating into real therapies that are making life-changing differences for those facing the daily challenges of T1D. According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, here in Arizona alone, one out of every nine people are diagnosed with diabetes. Throughout the United States, more than 1.25 million Americans are living with T1D, including about 200,000 youth.

JDRF is looking to exceed expectations and raise as much money as possible to fund human clinical trials and other promising research approaches. This could directly impact the more than 40,000 people who will be diagnosed this year with T1D. For more information about the event and how to purchase tickets, log onto .
