JDRF Hope Gala 2014

This past weekend was the annual JDRF Hope Gala. This was my fifth or sixth gala and my third with Jeremy, this year topped them all! 

 If some of you don't know, I met Jeremy the night of the gala 3 years ago! I would always go every year but it's so special to know the gala is kind of how we met! 


I was so obsessed with the decor this year, They kind of captured the look I want for my wedding and they were selling the balls at the end of the night!




After the silent auctions, live suctions and dinner there is "Fund a Cure," where you just take your bid card and donate to JDRF and finding a cure. Rachel and I are both Type 1 Diabetics and we funded a cure this year! 


 We always end the evening with dancing and more drinks! We danced so hard this year, I think at one point I was the ONLY person cutting' a rug out there!

The JDRF Triad Chapter Gala raised $1.2 million last night towards finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes! I am so proud to be a part of such an amazing organization and group of people. What connects us may not be the best thing to have but what connects us is special and I am so glad to have that.
