JDRF held the 40th annual One Dream Gala at McCormick Place on Saturday, December 14. Sponsored by Chicago magazine, the evening raised more than $7 million for type 1 diabetes (TD1) research advancements. Guests enjoyed a silent auction of over 400 packages, a delicious meal, live auction items, powerful speeches by JDRF leadership, and a special performance by Third Eye Blind. The global record-breaking fundraising total will accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. For more information, visit the JDRF Illinois website.
