The Belle of the Ball

This past weekend we enjoyed our local JDRF gala to raise money to further research to find a cure for type 1 diabetes. 

It was a lovely evening. Cocktail attire, which I am never crazy about but our little diabetic darling was the "belle of the ball" in her pretty pink dress!

She danced the night away and charmed the attendees!

And my favorite part of the evening was the silent auction. Where her contribution to raising money for a cure sat. Her fabulous art teacher spent hours and hours helping her complete and original work of art to auction off at the gala to raise money for type 1 diabetes. Take a look at her amazing work!

This is a "mixed-media" piece. 

And it raised $300 for JDRF!

We were so happy and proud that she is so invested in spending her free time to volunteering and furthering research for a cure. It certainly helps that she LOVES art! (keep in mind this is a first grader!!!)

And since I was not yet blogging, I will add a picture of last year's work of art! This was a painting that sold for $480!! 

And again it goes to show what an AMAZING school we have. For our art teacher to not only take the time to work on this project, but to take her Saturday night and attend the gala with us tells you how amazing this school community really is! AND not did we have her art teacher in attendance, but also our school nurse and her husband! Again I say, I L-O-V-E our school!

Our gala ended up hitting it's goal before the end of the evening and they are still counting money! So, this is a big thank you to all of our supporters, sponsors, families, and readers! We couldn't fight this fight without you! Every dollar we raise brings us closer to a cure for type 1 diabetes and there are no words to express how amazing that day will be for everyone living with T1D.
