Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Promise Ball
Raises Record-Breaking $1.2 Million
Charting the Course to a Cure was the theme for This Year’s Ball
Houston, Texas


It was a magic night for the annual Promise Ball benefiting
the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation held at the Hilton
Americas Hotel. Over 800 guests attended the evening that
was led by Chairman Rosemary Schatzman and Jeff Smith
and brought in more than $1.2 million to the coffers of JDRF,
an all-time record for the event. The guests began the
evening bidding on silent auction items, then moved into the
beautifully decorated ballroom created by Darryl Murchinson
Design, for the luscious dinner and to bid on live auction
items. The big ticket items included a week at the exclusive
Villas del Mar in Cabo San Lucas, a Hawaiian Holiday at the
Four Seasons Resort at Wailea in Maui, and a dinner for 40
at Fleming’s Steak House. This year’s auction chairs were
Kimberly Miller, Kathryn Smith and Elizabeth Vail.
Honorees this year were Alana Spiwak and Sam Stolbun,
whose daughter Ariel has type 1 diabetes, and who have been
long-time supporters of JDRF. The corporate honoree was
Halliburton, represented by Halliburton executive Jeff Miller
and his wife, Rhonda.
The Sam Smith Most Valuable Volunteer Award went to this
year’s Invitation Chairman, Vanessa Sendukas, for her tireless
efforts on behalf of the gala.
The ballroom decor transported the guests on a voyage to find
a cure for diabetes. Everyone enjoyed dancing or listening to
the ever popular music of ELS from New Orleans.
JDRF, the leading charitable funder and advocate of type
1(juvenile) diabetes research worldwide, was founded in 1970
by the parents of children with juvenile diabetes-a disease
which strikes children suddenly, makes them insulin dependent
for life, and carries a constant threat of devastating complications.
Since its inception, JDRF has provided more than
$900 million in direct funding to diabetes research. More
than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support
research and research-related education. JDRF’s mission is
constant: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications
through support of research.
