Join us for our 20th Platinum Anniversary and help us
Turn Type 1 into Type None!
As one of Houston's premier social events, the Promise Ball is an annual black-tie event benefiting the JDRF Houston Gulf Coast Chapter. More than 1,000 prominent philanthropic community leaders join JDRF for a seated dinner featuring delicious cuisine, silent and live auctions featuring one-of-a-kind items, exciting live entertainment by Professor D, a night of dancing, and late night casino games with great prizes. The 2018 Promise Ball raised over $1.83 million for JDRF-funded research aimed at treating, preventing and curing type 1 diabetes in children and adults.
2019 Promise Ball Chairs, Dr. Mark and Mary D'Andrea, are excited to bring you an incredible night. Join us as we celebrate the amazing research developments over the past 20 years and the exciting developments ahead for type 1 research.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research and because of generous donor and partner support, we have been able to direct over $2 billion toward research. JDRF is an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. JDRF collaborates with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Our vision is to create a world without T1D. For more information, please visit jdrf.org or follow us on Twitter: @JDRF.
