Jordan D. Schnitzer will present the Living & Giving Award to Donald & Suzanne Krahmer at the JDRF Hope Gala on May 7, 2016. The Hope Gala is a special evening live and silent auction bidding, great entertainment, and Fund A Cure hosted by JDRF Oregon & SW Washington Chapter. JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Their strength lies in their exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D, an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly with no known cures or preventative measures.
Each year at the Hope Gala, the JDRF Oregon/SW Washington Chapter presents the “Living and Giving Award” to an individual or individuals or company who is (are) an outstanding philanthropist(s), not only to JDRF, but to our community at large. This honor recognizes those who stand out as exemplary leaders and who have, for a long time, set the standard for “giving back” to the community in many ways – resources, time and talent.
