Save the Date: Breakthrough T1D All-Star Ball

Let’s Play Ball!

The 18th Annual Breakthrough T1D Hope Gala is going to be an All-Star Ball! On Saturday, October 15, 2016 the Breakthrough T1D Greater Iowa Chapter will host an evening of fun and fund-raising at Embassy Suites Downtown Des Moines. The event will include a fabulous cocktail party, upscale seated dinner and outstanding live and silent auctions. The program culminates with our annual Fund A Cure finale in which 100% of the proceeds will support diabetes research.

As the Hope Gala Honorees, Ed & Christine Collinet of Mercedes-Benz of Des Moines will help strike out T1D and will be recognized for their outstanding commitment to Breakthrough T1D and passion for creating a world without T1D.

More than 425 guests are expected to attend this year’s annual Hope Gala in support of Breakthrough T1D. Proceeds from the event will go towards research and treatments of type 1 diabetes. Last year’s gala event raised more than $418,000 for the Greater Iowa Chapter.

Be a part of this prominent event by attending, sponsoring or donating an auction item. Individual tickets are $200 each and table sponsorships are available. For more information on event details; sponsorship, donation and ticket options, please visit the event site or contact Michelle Weigel at or 515-802-3330.
