DYF Gala

This year the DYF Gala celebrated 80 Beautiful Years!  We were blessed to have so many camp families, past and current board members attend to share their stories and memories over the years.  Click below to hear a powerful speech from one of our current campers Ayla Kanow:

Our beloved annual fundraising event focuses on reuniting camp alumni, DYF supporters, and families affected by T1D. All funds raised benefit DYF’s health education programs and summer resident camps for children, teens, and families affected by T1D. Join us for a beautiful evening that includes dinner, dancing, a silent auction, and a spectacular live auction. Since 2001, this event has raised more than $3.5 million for DYF programs.

Celebrating 80 years of life-changing camp experiences for children, teens, and families affected by Type 1 Diabetes

Third Party Events

DYF supporters are encouraged to participate in fundraising events hosted by outside parties. Lions Clubs and other organizations organize events to raise funds for DYF, and attending these events is a great way to show your support. Keep an eye on DYF’s newsletters for these events!
