If you’re looking for an opportunity to make a big difference with a small amount of time, the West Texas Plains Chapter JDRF’s fight night should be marked on your calendar. JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research and exclusively focuses their energy on helping the millions of families affected by the disease.
Fight Night starts at 6:00 with open bars, a silent auction and hors d’ oeuvres and will be followed by dinner catered by Macaroni Joe’s and Caviness Beef Packing. Lastly, you can end the night dancing to Noah Jenda or by participating in the live auction, as well as the fantasy drawing.
Not sold yet? Don’t worry, it gets better. There are over 14o unique packages up for bid in the silent auction and the live auction is said to be filled with unique items such as travel opportunities, “one of a kind” experiences and more.
Tickets for the Fantasy Drawing are $50 each and give each buyer the opportunity to win two Southwest Airline travel vouchers and a Visa Cash Card valued at $1,000.
All guests much check in upon entering to receive a table number and bid card.
In addition to the details, JFRF would like to give a special thanks to United Supermarkets for supporting JDRF as the Presenting Sponsor. United has been a big part of the fight against diabetes in previous years and has left an impression that does not go unappreciated. “We have family members affected,” said team member of JDRF, “we are so close to a cure it seems the advantages have been great.”
The style for the ball is semi-formal. Ladies, grab that little black dress, dressy separates or your best cocktail dress. Men, a creative black tie or a sports coat and dress pants are requested for the occasion.
We hope you can join us Saturday, April 2nd at the Heritage Ballroom in the Amarillo Civic Center. Together we can turn type one into type none.
