2018 JDRF Brew for a Cure

On November 10, 2018, the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) "Brew for a Cure" event took place at the Stony Creek Brewery in Branford, CT.  I was honored to be a co-chair of the event with my esteemed colleague Joan Wallack.  My role as co-chair encompassed a variety of tasks including, but not limited to, bringing a little bit of humor to the event by playing guitar and singing a few songs with Band Overboard.


This was the fourth year of the event and I was humbled by the quantity of sponsors, with specific appreciation for the number of new sponsors from the design, construction, and related service fields that supported the JDRF.  The JDRF is a non-profit fundraising organization with the mission of improving lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent, and treat Type 1 Diabetes.  T1D is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly, and presently has no cure.  Great strides have been made in research including, but not limited to, the development of the artificial pancreas system.

Below are photos showing the great turnout for the event as well as some of the items from the silent auction.
