Steal away to exotic and colorful Cuba for an unforgettable evening at the 2017 Promise Ball Havana Nights.
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, a night of dancing to the high energy band Skyrocket!, and late night casino games with great prizes. Led by Julie and Dr. Robin Goytia, 2017 Promise Ball chairs, this year's gala will be emceed by Drew Dougherty, host of Texans TV.
The 2016 Promise Ball was a sold-out event that raised a record-breaking $2.87M for JDRF-funded research aimed at treating, preventing and curing type 1 diabetes in children and adults.

We're the stop at nothing type
JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
Your participation in JDRF events ensures that JDRF can continue funding critical T1D research. With your support, this research will continue to bring us closer to a world without T1D.
