JDRF Delaware Hope Ball

FY15 Final Logo Large

The 15th Annual Delaware Hope Ball: Derby After Dark will be held on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington.

The Hope Ball is an extraordinary event, each year bringing together more than 400 prominent members of the Delaware community for a sparkling evening of fine dining, stellar entertainment and an exciting and elegant live and silent auction that each year raises thousands towards funding research to prevent, treat and ultimately cure type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Join us this spring as JDRF Delaware celebrates 15 years of funding T1D research. Since the first Hope Ball in 2000, the Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland community have gathered for the annual event and contributed more than $5.2 Million to JDRF research!
