Appleton Creative Helps JDRF Cirque du Cure Gala Raise Awareness!

Posted on: November 2nd, 2010

The Appleton team was proud to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)’s Cirque du Cure gala at the Loew’s Portofino Bay Resort. The purpose of the event was to raise both awareness and funds, and they did just that! Over 300 people attended the fundraiser, and all proceeds will benefit the foundation’s mission to find a cure for Type I diabetes. JDRF not only supports research, but also works to improve the treatment process for those who suffer with the disease while scientists make advances toward the cure. Appleton conducted interviews and video taped the event in order to create future videos that will help JDRF in their efforts to raise awareness.

Through a series of auctions and donations, we are happy to say that over $260,000 was raised at the gala and will be donated.  JDRF is the worldwide leader in raising funds for diabetes research, and events like these are the reason why the program is so successful.  Appleton Creative is pleased to have been one of the members of our outstanding community to participate in this special event.
