The K9 for Kids Benefit

October 26, 2010

Special Event & Award Announcement

We would like to share this special offer to JDRF supporters for an event taking place at the Fashion Industry Gallery, put on by our friends at the Diabetes Friendly Foundation (DFF), who supports K9s for Kids.

The K9 for Kids Benefit will be held Saturday, November 13 at the Fashion Industry Gallery (also known as F.I.G.), located at 1807 Ross Avenue, from 7:30pm to midnight. It will be a night of food, drinks, silent auction and live performances by recording artists Jordyn Shellhart, Eric Paslay and The Special Edition Band. Mrs. Laura Leppert, who serves on our JDRF Greater Dallas Board, is also a supporter of DFF and is serving as Chairperson for the K9 for Kids Benefit.

We are excited to announce that at this event a special award will be given to JDRF Volunteer, Jeanine Connolly and Dove, her loyal therapy dog, for being such outstanding outreach volunteer champions. Jeanine and Dove will be recognized for their wonderful service to kids, teens and adults living with diabetes.

Dove loves to “work”. Besides her therapy work, she is very proud to pull her cart.

Jeanine is a Medical Family Therapist intern who has actively managed type 1 diabetes for nearly 40 years and specializes in working with people whose lives have been impacted by medical conditions. Jeanine and Dove have given countless volunteer hours to JDRF and our families. They are very deserving of this award and we can’t thank them enough for all that they do for JDRF and our mission to find a cure for diabetes!

Special Ticket Offer!

Through the partnership between DFF and JDRF, a special ticket offer is available to attend the K9 for Kids Benefit for $100 (normally $125) and a percentage of the proceeds will benefit JDRF. Purchase tickets at this special rate online!

IMPORTANT: Use the “Other” function to enter the proper dollar amount for the number of tickets you would like to purchase.

For those interested in Diabetes Alert Dogs, JDRF directs inquires to the Diabetes Friendly Foundation.

The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research, but we will always have good connections available to you for your needs with diabetes. If you are looking for resources or support, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You are not alone and we are always ready to help!
