Fundraising in Your Community (Third Party Events)

What is a third party event? It is a fundraising event for JDRF, organized independently
by an outside (third) party.

If your company, club, or group is interested in helping raise funds for JDRF, there are many ways to do so. From raffles to barbecues, bake sales, garage sales, car washes, and golf tournaments, the only limit is your imagination!

If you are interested in hosting an event or would like more information, contact the JDRF office. 

Strides & Suds for a Cure!
