We would like to give a huge thank you to everyone for helping make this year's Crystal Ball Gala a huge success. The evening would have been impossible without the help and support of our amazing guests, sponsors, and committee. Special thanks goes out to our generous sponsors for helping make this year's Crystal Ball Gala as amazing as it was. Thank you to Ford, Gagnon Demolition, Movement Health. Their support goes above and beyond just a financial contribution. A big thank you also goes out to DJ Sav from Mobile Beats Entertainment for keeping us dancing during the gala. All of these amazing people have stepped up to the challenge with donations of their time, products and as advocates for our mission.
This year, we raised over $92,000! It was great to have all of you there supporting an amazing cause and having a lot of fun!  I want to thank all of you for your support. You all made this year's Crystal Ball Gala a beautiful night to remember! I hope you all had an amazing time because we are doing amazing things when it comes to research and finding a cure for type 1 diabetes! Can't wait to see you all again next year!

Thank you walkers, each year you come out, request donations, form your teams and you join the community--we can't thank you enough!!
