On April 27, 2019, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) of Alabama hosted the One Night Gala & After Party at Haven located in downtown Birmingham. This black-tie optional event raised funds and awareness for juvenile diabetes through both a silent and live auction. Additionally, dinner by Kathy G & Company, chance drawings, and live musical entertainment were provided to add to the fun.
O’Neal Manufacturing Services participated as a bronze sponsor of the event. Our sister company, O’Neal Steel, served as the title sponsor and our parent company, O’Neal Industries, received recognition for its long-term commitment to JDRF.
This year, ten live auction items and one hundred thirteen silent auction items were up for grabs. These prizes included travel items, sporting goods, jewelry, home décor, dining, tribute baskets created by children with type one diabetes, and two puppies.
Jennifer Bentley, JDRF Development Manager, shares that over $500,000 was raised in honor of the foundation! We applaud JDRF for planning such a wonderful evening for an amazing cause.
