Honoring Hockessin Athletic Club

The 15th annual Delaware Hope Ball is an extraordinary event that brings together Delaware and Pennsylvania community leaders and committed JDRF supporters for an evening of fine dining, exciting and elegant Live and Silent Auctions, and entertainment at our extravagant Late Party that is unique only to the JDRF Delaware event. Since 2001, JDRF friends have gathered locally to raise a cumulative $5.5 million to fund research to prevent, treat and ultimately cure type 1 diabetes. Join more than 350 guests at Delaware’s ultimate party with a purpose and the return of the much-anticipated Late Party: A Starry Night.

Ways to Give

Fund a Cure

Immediately following the Live Auction, JDRF offers individuals and companies the opportunity to contribute directly to T1D research during our Fund A Cure auction. Guests will be invited to raise their bid cards at various donation levels, making a 100% tax-deductible contribution that directly funds JDRF research. You can participate in Fund A Cure whether or not you are able to attend the event.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Event sponsors enjoy benefits such as premier seating, champagne toasts, and recognition at the event and beyond. A sponsorship is extraordinarily effective. More than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures go directly to education and research to prevent, treat and cure type 1 diabetes.
