Go up close and personal with Harry Connick Jr. as he performs throughout the entire audience in The International Ballroom of The Beverly Hilton Hotel, and has the audience up on it’s feet for an amazing, emotional performance, for about a 40 minute concert last night to raise money for JDRF for Juvenile Diabetes during the “IMAGINE GALA” .
During the live auction over a half million dollars was raised in under 20 minutes for this very worthwhile cause TO BENEFIT BREAKTHROUGH DIABETES RESEARCH, and educating people on what it is like to live with type 1 diabetes (T1D), and to support life-saving research to cure, treat, and prevent T1D. Since its inception in 1970, JDRF has funded virtually every major breakthrough in diabetes research. Marc and Robyn Sidoti were honored for their dedication to the JDRF’s vision of finding a cure for T1D. If you like to make a donation to help out kids with Diabetes go to: JDRFLAimagineGala.org
