Columbus Gives Back is excited to partner with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and volunteer as the concierge for the 2019 Promise Ball! Join us for the 21st annual Promise Ball as we “Go Wild for a Cure” to raise funds for life-changing type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Travel with us from cocktail hour and silent auction, to sit down dinner and live auction. Finish the evening by participating in the “auction of passion” during Fund A Cure.
What: Most of us will serve as concierge, which means you will be the point person for three (3) to five (5) tables during the evening program. You will need to be in the ballroom by 7:00pm with a ballroom diagram, spotter wand, and your guest list. You must be out-going and friendly. This is a very interactive position. We are also serving as floaters and support for the live auction.
Event Leaders: firstname.lastname@example.org
Where: Archie Griffin Grand Ballroom at the Ohio Union at the Ohio State University
When: Please arrive at 6:45. Concierge training will begin at 6:45 and we will go live at 7pm!
Attire: Please wear formal attire.
More About JDRF: JDRF exists for the millions of children, adults, and families affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D) every single day. Their determination to overcome this disease strengthens ours to end it by funding life-changing T1D research.
T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin — a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.
About #CbusGivesBack: Columbus Gives Back coordinates group volunteer events with local non-profits, organizes philanthropic happy hours to raise support and awareness for our non-profit partners, and participates in other philanthropic events while emphasizing our social twist: to have fun with volunteers new and old during and after events in the hopes of creating a culture of community engagement amongst our target audience of young professionals.
