We formally invite you to join us for the 13th Annual Promise Ball: A Night in Versailles on October 14th, 2017 at the Empress Hotel, an elegant evening of socializing and supporting an important cause – the fight against type 1 diabetes (T1D). The evening will be complete with a sumptuous, multi-course meal, fabulous silent and live auction and unique entertainment inspired by the lively court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

Since inception, the Promise Ball Gala has raised an incredible $2.4 million to help the JDRF accelerate the discovery, development, and delivery of cutting edge advances to cure, better treat, and prevent T1D. The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is a global leader in the search for an end to T1D through its research funding and advocacy, and Vancouver Islanders have been active supporters of local JDRF events, including the annual Golf Tournament, Revolution Ride, and Walk for the Cure.

The Promise Ball, the JDRF’s signature event on the Island, is an lavish, hot ticket party. Since the event was founded in 2004, Promise Ball guests have enjoyed sophisticated, creative and one-of-a-kind experiences, attended by a who’s who of Victoria’s community and business leaders.
