Besides the dinner and concert, the event will include a live and silent auction to raise money to help kids battling diabetes. The fundraiser includes a separate, optional golf tournament earlier today.
Active Charity is a group of local businessmen and their supporters who have raised over $1.4 million dollars for JDRF in the first five years. Chevron is the presenting sponsor tonight. Valentine Wealth is the host sponsor.
"The money raised helps our treatment, education and prevention programs, aimed at kids and their families coping with juvenile diabetes," said Kelly Craft of JDRF.
Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.5 billion to diabetes research, including more than $107 million last year. More than 80 percent of JDRF's expenditures directly support research and research-related education. For more information, visit www.JDRFbayarea.org.
