JDRF’s annual Black tie event in Sydney went off with a bang this year. Dare I say it…. Best Ball Ever! The team at JDRF did a wonderful job pulling it all together and everyone I saw had an amazing night.

We certainly had a great night supporting JDRF and DB Life was again a proud sponsor this year. We were happy to see so many other sponsors join in at all the gala balls around the country. JDRF has published them all here. This post from JDRF also highlights the almost $1.5M raised across the Nuit Blanche gala ball events, and the success of the event is a credit to Anna and the rest of the team at JDRF.

Also notable following this night was the federal governments funding announcement for CGM devices for children and young adults. I am sure that the efforts of JDRF helped to bring about this funding announcement, and it was a real treat to wake up to this news the following morning… albeit a little bit worse for wear after a night of good food, good wine and good company.
