Gary Hall, Jr.

Olympic Medalist, Gary Hall, Jr.


2009 Gem of an Evening Gala

Olympic Medalist to Share Diabetes Story as Keynote Speaker



PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL – January 16, 2009 – Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s (JDRF) announced today that Gary Hall, Jr., will serve as the keynote speaker for the 2009 Gem of an Evening Gala to be held Saturday, February 7th, 6:30 p.m. at The Breakers.

Hall is a three-time Olympian and 10-time Olympic medalist, winning five gold, three silver and two bronze medals in swimming.  Hall was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1999 and at that time he was told by doctors that he would never again be able to compete at the same level that saw him win four medals, including two gold, at the 1996 Olympics. He proved everyone wrong in a big way, winning his first individual gold by capturing the 50 meter freestyle at the 2000 Olympics and doing it again in 2004. Through his foundation and sponsors, Hall serves as a powerful advocate for diabetes awareness, education and funding

Emceeing this year’s Gala will be Jay Cashmere, WPTV NewsChannel 5 anchor and reporter.  During the Gala evening, the focus will be on lively entertainment, dinner and dancing and research support in the way of a live auction and Fund-A-Cure, JDRF's signature giving program.

Presenting sponsor for the 2009 event is National City Private Client Group (Mark Stevens, executive VP-managing director).  Melissa Parker is returning for a third year as chairman in honor of her son, Derek, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2005.  The Gala Committee is inclusive of Parker, Jamie Applefield, Michele Bianco, Julia Chandler Boss, Gina Gordon, Gail McMillan, Donna Ross, Lisa Thompson, Valerie Waters, and Jodi Wentley.

Gem of an Evening is black tie and offers an elegant evening of fun for a worthwhile cause. For more information on tickets or sponsorship opportunities, please call  561-686-7701.
