I really can't wait to tell you all about it. This gala looks HUGE! In the past, I have volunteered for the Orange County chapter, but now that I live in Los Angeles, it's time to switch over. The auction items here look amazing and it looks like it's going to be full of amazing people.

As I have mentioned in previous posts, going to a JDRF event is seriously one of the best medications a diabetic can take. There is NOTHING like being in a room full of people who are aware on some level of our struggles and are all are FIGHTING for a cure. I do have to work late, so I will be arriving late, but I will fill you all in on all the good details! :)

The Gala is my favorite JDRF event. First off, I love dressing up and seeing people in general just be really classy. (You could only imagine how much I loved the Royal Wedding!) Live auctions are super exciting and I love hearing about all the crazy prizes! My personal favorite that I am looking forward to see people fight over is the:

Dance Like A Star

Dance like a star with longtime JDRF supporter and Dancing with the Stars: Season 12 celebrity Sugar Ray Leonard and his partner, Anna Trebunskaya. This one-on-one experience will allow you to spend some time on the dance floor with Sugar Ray and world-class dancing professional, Anna, who will conduct a private dance lesson with you.

Get ready to Dance like a Star!
