2019 Gala Youth Ambassador Applications – Now Open!

Breakthrough T1D is now accepting applications for 2019 Hope Gala Youth Ambassadors!

Applications are available here. All applications, along with the required supporting documents, must be submitted to Breakthrough T1D before 5:00p.m. on Friday, December 14, 2018.

On Saturday, May 18, 2019, the 20th Annual Breakthrough T1D Hope Gala will move us nearly $1 million closer to a cure but we need help from some of the area’s great T1D representatives. Youth Ambassadors help to fundraise and share Breakthrough T1D’s mission at the Gala. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to, selling raffle tickets, providing a silent auction package, greeting guests as they enter the ballroom, helping with Live Auction and participation in Fund A Cure.
