It’s almost time for one of the most elegant parties of the year, The Promise Ball benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). This year the JDRF Arizona Chapter will host its annual gala on Saturday, November 11 to help fund a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. The black-tie fundraiser themed “Don’t Stop Believing” will be held at The Phoenician Resort & Spa in Scottsdale and society and valley industry leaders will be in attendance at this premier event. The world-class charity party featuring an evening of fine dining, spectacular entertainment, and an edge-of-your seat auction will be the backdrop to help raise funds for research and programs for Type 1 Diabetes in AZ and across the nation. Last year, the chapter raised more than $1.7 million net and this year the bar is set even higher.
Since 2009, the local chapter has raised $8,857,055 through its fundraising galas. Of course raising money for such a worthy cause is the most important part of the evening but can we talk about the dresses that will be worn? Attending the Promise Ball is like watching the Oscars- the fashion is highly anticipated and designers are hoping their gowns appear on the pages of glossy local magazines. Stay tuned to my social media next Saturday night for a peek into the event (and all the fabulous fashions of course!)
