Honoring Vanessa & Tony Sturgeon and The Bassett Family
Presented by Larry & Suzanne Mackin

Join in on the fun May 15, 2021 for a virtual Hope Gala experience. Bid and buy all week-long starting May 8. Then on May 15, gather your friends and family around for a Hope Gala in your home, bid on the premier auction and sing along to celebrity performances. Grab some popcorn or serve as a VIP Party Host and receive a PNW Party in Box, delivered straight to your door, ready with goodies to complete the Hope Gala experience! Led by Gala Chairs, Larry and Suzanne Mackin, the JDRF Hope Gala will bring together distinguished guests and T1D champions to celebrate the tenacity and courage displayed by the T1D community, all while raising critical funds for T1D research. We can’t wait to see you there!

These quilts were donated by Speckled Hen Quilts to help in the fund raising:

Ways to Give

Fund A Cure

Fund A Cure immediately follows the Live Auction portion of the evening. Fund A Cure is an opportunity to make an impact on the lives of people living with T1D and their loved ones through a 100% tax-deductible donation, which will accelerate life-changing research. Fund A Cure donations will be invested in JDRF’s effective and focused research agenda aimed to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until there is a cure.
