JDRF Bourbon & BowTie Bash
In 2014, the Emerging Leaders Council of the Southwest Ohio Chapter of JDRF organized the first annual Bourbon & BowTie Bash as a way to engage new constituents and educate those people about the challenges of living with type 1 diabetes (T1D). The event exceeded expectations, selling out with over 500 attendees and raising over $40,000 for T1D research. This BowTie was created with the intent to increase awareness of the event and those living with T1D.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding T1D research. Our strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D. Our mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent, and treat T1D and its complications.
Millions of people around the world live with type 1 diabetes (T1D), a life-threatening autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults. There is no way to prevent it, and at present, no cure. JDRF works every day to change this by amassing grassroots support, deep scientific knowledge and strong industry and academic partnerships to fund research. JDRF funds research that transforms the lives of people with T1D. We want a cure, and we won’t stop until we find one. Along the way, we will continue to drive scientific progress that delivers new treatments and therapies that make day-to-day life with T1D easier, safer, and healthier.
The BowTie design depicts a wood grain pattern on one side of the BowTie, while the other shows interlocking bourbon glasses. Both of these design elements depict the main theme of the Bourbon & BowTie Bash, which raised over $40,000 for JDRF in 2014.
With your purchase of a BowTie, you are not only raising awareness, but $10 will be donated to JDRF of Southwest Ohio.
