Promise Ball Gala

| December 19, 2017 | Parties

THE PARTY As one of Arizona’s largest fundraising galas, this black-tie affair, hosted by the Arizona Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, was teeming with silent auctions, delectable dishes and live entertainment. The elegant The Phoenician Resort & Spa created a flawless scene for the “Don’t Stop Believing”-themed event on behalf of raising awareness and funds for finding a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
THE GUESTS KTVK anchor Olivia Fierro highlighted the evening’s timeless ambiance as emcee alongside America’s foremost “auctiontainer” Letitia Frye. The benefit prospered with the orchestration of event chairs Dr. Susan Van Dyke, of Van Dyke Aesthetics, and local family law attorney Charles Friedman. THE HIGHLIGHTS This year, the gala honored the Friedman family for their outstanding commitment to JDRF’s vision of a world without Type 1 diabetes. -Holly Miller
