JDRF Greater New Haven Prepares for 2012 Dream Gala

NEW HAVEN – JDRF Greater New Haven will hold its 13th annual Dream Gala on April 28 at the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale.
Tickets for the “evening of lively entertainment, legendary auctions and fundraising” are available online now for purchase.
The evening, themed “Past, Present, and Future,” will honor Albert Subbloie, president, CEO and founder of Tangoe, according to a statement.
“Tangoe is the leading global provider of Communications Lifecycle Management software and related services to a wide range of global enterprises,” the statement said. “Founded in 2000, Tangoe currently supports more than 500 active clients, many of them large multinational corporations.”
Headquartered in Orange, Tangoe has nine operation centers around the globe, including international offices in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Kunshan, China, the statement said.
JDRF is recognizing Albert Subbloie for his long-standing commitment to the Foundation’s mission of finding a cure for diabetes and its complications.
The night’s entertainment will include the musical talent of Janey Street, and inspirational speakers from the JDRF community, the statement said.
The live and silent auctions will offer items ranging from luxurious vacation trips to autographed sports memorabilia to jewelry and clothing, the statement said. Additionally, the night will highlight JDRF’s signature Fund-A-Cure program, during which 100 percent tax-deductible donations may be made to research.
More than 300 guests are expected to attend the Gala in support of JDRF, the statement said. In 2011, the Dream Gala raised more than $260,000 for diabetes research. JDRF hopes to continue its success this year through corporate sponsorships, donations, auction activity, ads and ticket sales, the statement said.

The goal of JDRF research is to improve the lives of every person affected by T1D by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners who share this goal.
Since its founding in 1970, JDRF has awarded more than $1.6 billion to diabetes research. Past JDRF efforts have helped to significantly advance the care of people with this disease, and have expanded the critical scientific understanding of T1D. JDRF will not rest until T1D is fully conquered. More than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research-related education."
