The 2017 JDRF Annual Hope Gala was held on last Saturday, September 16 at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, The Depot. Every year, the Minnesota chapter of JDRF holds a gala to raise money towards finding a cure and putting an end to Type 1 diabetes. This year, JDRF surpassed their goal and raised over $800,000 due to the enormous generosity of the attendees.
We are proud to have been a Platinum sponsor for this year’s event. Our media team here at Twin Cities Closet Company put together a video for one of the live auction items. The item was a collaborative painting started by 6 young kids affected with Type 1 and finished by local artist and former Twin Cities Closet Company employee, Mouhamadou Cisse. The link to the video is embedded below.
We would also like to congratulate the winner of the $5,000 Gift Certificate that Twin Cities Closet Company donated. Our team looks forward to working with that future customer as well as next year’s Hope Gala! If you would like to contribute to finding a cure to end Type 1, please visit JDRF’s donation website in the link below.
