Climb Through the Looking Glass with us
as we embark on a journey to
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 SkyRocket!, a night of dancing, and late night casino games sponsored by Liskow & Lewis with great prizes. The 2017 Promise Ball raised over $1.6 million for JDRF-funded research aimed at treating, preventing and curing type 1 diabetes in children and adults.
2018 Promise Ball Chairs, Charity and John Todd, are excited to bring you another great night featuring the theme "Through the Looking Glass". Join us on a fun journey through this enchanting storybook fantasy as we raise funds 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.
