SARATOGA SPRINGS — Whether you know someone affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) or just want to make a difference in their life, JDRF, formerly the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, invites you to take part in its 18th annual Hoff man Car Wash and Hoff man Jiff y Lube Golf Classic and Par-Tee Th ursday, June 7 at the picturesque Saratoga National Golf Club, located at 458 Union Avenue, Saratoga Springs. Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, called beta cells. While its causes are not yet entirely understood, scientists believe that both genetic factors and environmental triggers are involved. Its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D, and—at present—nothing you can do to get rid of it.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Th eir mission is to accelerate lifechanging breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. To accomplish this, JDRF has invested more than $2 billion in research funding since our inception. They are an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally for effi  ciency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a national stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. JDRF collaborates with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Th eir staff  and volunteers throughout the United States and our six international affi  liates are dedicated to advocacy, community engagement and our vision of a world without T1D. The event, which will take place rain or shine, will get underway at 11 a.m. with registration and lunch. Golfers will take to the course at 12:30 p.m. in a shotgun scramble. The day will conclude at 5:30 p.m. with an enjoyable Par-Tee. 

“Our annual Golf Classic and Par-Tee is a great way to have some fun while helping those battle the disease,” said Ellen Pickett, Development Coordinator, JDRF Northeastern New York, noting that the non-profi t aims to raise more than $200,000.

“More than 10,000 people live with T1D within the 17 counties we serve. Monies raised will help fund more than 70 human clinical trials of potential T1D therapies, as well as support JDRF’s Outreach Program, which off ers personalized support to families, adults, and children living with T1D on how to better manage and cope with the disease,” she continued.

Evening Par-Tee tickets are $75 and include an exclusive evening soirée for golfers and guests featuring the ultimate Mazzone food and cocktail experience, live music by Erin Harkes, and one-of-a-kind live and silent auction items, including golf, travel, entertainment, jewelry, local experiences, and more.
