Auction Donations

On Saturday, April 22, 2017 JDRF will hold its 30th Annual flagship fundraiser, “A Starry Starry Night”. It does not seem so long ago when it was inaugarated as the must-attend event in Winnipeg and it has, through the tireless dedication of supporters and volunteers, kept its position as the premier fundraising event in the city.

To help us celebrate “A Starry Starry Night’s” 30 years of success in raising funds for diabetes research, we would like to invite you to join other generous donors by providing an auction item from your company or organization. Your donation item will be showcased at our event where over 700 of Winnipeg’s most affluent and influential corporate and community leaders will view your products and services.

Our gala has continued to grow and has now raised almost $5 million for type 1 research, with a large portion of that funding directed to research in Manitoba.

Please complete and return an auction donation form by February 28, 2017 to ensure recognition of your company name in all our printed materials. Prominent recognition of your support will be made in our auction program and other promotional materials.
