It was a magical evening at the JDRF South Jersey Chapter’s 2017 Gala, held on April 22, 2017 at The Westin Mt. Laurel, co-chaired by Marisa Herskovitz and Cindy Kramer. Over 400 guests attended the Harry Potter themed fundraiser that included a cocktail reception and dinner, entertainment by EBE’s Imagine, magic by Amazing Mike, silent and live auctions, and Fund A Cure.
A very special moment was Fund A Cure speaker, Morgan Laufgraben, age 14, living with T1D. Morgan graciously spoke about this disease, and how it impacts her daily life; receiving a standing ovation by all.
A Special Thank You to our Celebrity Emcees

We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
