 A Starry Starry Night Gala

This is a difficult time for all of us as we confront a new challenge facing our community, the COVID-19 pandemic. To help stop the spread of the virus, we are rescheduling the A Starry Starry Night Gala, honouring Gary & Gwen Steiman from April 25th to September 12th, 2020. While we are disappointed, we won’t be able to hold this special event for you next month, we know it’s in the best interest of our collective health.

We hope that you will join us in supporting this important event and continue to buy tickets and tables for the September date. Your support is more important now than ever before and will help us continue to advance our mission and vision during this crisis.

If with the change on date, you can no longer attend and have already purchased tickets and/or tables, you can contact Kim Leroy at [email protected] to change your purchase to a Fund-A-Cure donation (100% tax receiptable), or to receive a refund.

We look forward to seeing you in September!

 What Is a Third Party Event?

A third party event is a fundraising event for JDRF that is organized independently by an outside (third) party. Many different groups, businesses, & individuals show their support of diabetes research every year by holding events or making corporate donations to JDRF.

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 to car washes, and golf tournaments.
The only limit is your imagination!

For more information, or to host a third party event in support of JDRF,
please contact our office at 204.953.4477 or [email protected].
