The JDRF One Night Extravaganza at the Iconic Union Station in LA

March 07, 2022

For the past sixteen years, I’ve been involved in JDRF, the world's largest nonprofit funder of type 1 diabetes research. JDRF is accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. I’m currently serving my second term on the JDRF Board. I joined the cause shortly after my son Tristan, 30, who was fourteen at the time, was diagnosed with type one diabetes. It’s a life-changing event and a scary diagnosis for all. 

I know that JDRF is improving the life of not just my son but the lives of millions who are living with this egregious disease. 

For that reason, I hope you can join JDRF One Night Extravaganza on April 2 at the iconic Union Station in Los Angeles. 

There will be no long speeches, no tables of 10 in a ballroom, and no formal dinner. Instead, the evening’s short program will focus on the meaningful work we all do for the type 1 diabetes community. 

O.N.E. will include:
casino gaming • a top-shelf open bar • a surprise performance by special guest entertainer • tasting stations of local LA cuisine • our host, KTLA Morning News Anchor & T1D Dad, Frank Buckley • etch a sketch artist Christoph Brown, The Amazing Etch Man • a premier live, silent & wine auction and more!

Leave the tuxedos and gowns at home.  Creative cocktail attire. Comfortable shoes encouraged!
