DYF Gala 2014: Join Us for Breakfast at Tiffany’s!

DYF Gala 2014: Join Us for Breakfast at Tiffany’s!


DYF is excited to announce that this year’s Annual Gala will be held on Saturday evening, November 8, 2014 at the lovely Julia Morgan Ballroom in San Francisco. For the second year in a row DYF will be hosting the Gala at the Julia Morgan Ballroom. Last year’s affair sold out hosting well over 300 DYF supporters.

The theme for this year’s event is “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and will honor grandparents of children with type-1 diabetes. Grandparents will be recognized for the support they give their grandchildren and children as they navigate the family’s journey with T1D.

In addition to musical entertainment, Tiffany boxes, Audrey Hepburn look-a-likes, pearls and a unique menu; fabulous silent and live auction items will also be available for guests to enjoy.

We are excited to announce that this year’s emcee is Roberta Gonzales, a 5 time Emmy Award Winning Meteorologist from KPIX Channel 5.  This is the second time Roberta has emceed the DYF Gala and we are delighted to be welcoming her back!

DYF DAY 2014

DYF DAY 2014


Looking for a way to support DYF programs?


Help DYF continue our goal to inspire courage, competence and confidence
in children, teens and families living with T1D!




DYF DAY is our largest fundraising initiative, comprised of two parts; a walk and celebration and then Mini DYF DAYS, which are year-round, individually sponsored “Do-it-Yourself FUNraisers” to help lend support for the programs our community knows and loves.

The best part is that you can help in ANY way that suits your busy schedule. You pick the way and day – your own day for DYF!

A Few Options:

  • Create an online fundraising page. (EASY!!) 
  • Host your own Mini DYF DAY! (A little creativity needed.)
    IDEAS: wine & cheese night, bake sale, concert, movie night, BBQ, spaghetti dinner, a party in honor of a “dia-birthday/diabetes anniversary,” a restaurant night out where you ask your favorite restaurant to donate a portion of the night’s sales. Sky’s the limit! *Be sure to let DYF know!
  • Ask a local business (or your own) to support DYF through sponsorship. (Go get ‘em!)


You can do one, all of those, or come up with your own idea – our families are creative! DYF DAY is about supporting DYF in any way you can. If you don’t have time to do a Mini DYF DAY, but do have time for an online fundraising page, great! If your company wants to sponsor DYF, awesome! Whatever way YOU can help is what DYF DAY is all about.
