Fundraiser Targets Type 1 Diabetes

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Hosts “Wine-ing for the Cure” Fundraiser
May 21 event set at Greengate Ranch & Vineyard in SLO

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation will host Wine-ing For the Cure, a Central Coast fundraiser to raise awareness and support research for those impacted by Type 1 diabetes. The event is May 21 at Greengate Ranch & Vineyard, San Luis Obispo.

Ticket sales close Wednesday, May 10.

The event will include a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner and local wines, along with live music, and live and silent auctions. All proceeds benefit Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to support the prevention, treatment, and cure for Type 1 diabetes.

VIP entrance begins at 4 p.m, followed by general admission entry at 5 p.m. VIP tickets are $175; general admission is $120.

Type 1 diabetes (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.

There are 1.25 million Americans who have T1D, including about 200,000 youth (younger than 20 years old) and more than a million adults (20 and older). Each year, 40,000 children and adults are diagnosed with T1D.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's mission is to accelerate breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D by investing nearly $2 billion in research funding and connecting with local communities, such as those on the Central Coast.

For more information on JDRF and T1D, visit diabetesfoundation.jdrf.com.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
