I’m posting this on behalf of Mary Podjasek, President of the Diabetes Scholars Foundation. Her mission in life is to help bring more people to Friends for Life (not to mention college scholarships), and that is a mission I support 100%.
Each year, Children with Diabetes
hosts a spectacular diabetes conference
where thousands of people come together. It’s an opportunity for individuals, impacted by diabetes, to increase their overall knowledge of diabetes management, receive up-to-date research information and build a lifelong diabetes network.
Unfortunately due to economic situations, some families will never have the ability to attend a conference and participate in this very unique experience. The Diabetes Scholars Foundation (www.diabetesscholars.org), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is committed to changing this by providing conference scholarships to families in need. For families dealing with economic hardship as well as a life threatening illness, the conference has both an immediate and long-term impact on them.
The Diabetes Scholars Foundation is hosting a Howl At The Moon Fundraiser on Saturday July 7, 2012 (7:00 pm) at the Marriott World Center in Orlando Florida. Please join us for the most unique dueling piano experience in the country. Come sing, dance and howl the night away as talented musicians perform your favorite songs. This high energy live show is centered around audience participation and two dueling pianos. Tickets to the event are $55 and include appetizers, two drinks and a silent/live auction. Funds raised from this event will benefit some very worthy families, help us carry out our mission and continue our programs.
We have the following opportunities are available:
$55 – Includes ticket to the show, appetizers and two drinks
$250 – Hip Hop Sponsorship – Includes acknowledgement at event, 2 tickets to show, appetizers & two drinks
$500 – Country Sponsorship – Includes acknowledgement at event, 4 tickets to show, appetizers & two drinks

Please consider supporting the Diabetes Scholars Foundation’s Howl at the Moon fundraiser and make an impossible dream possible for some very special families. Thank you for your consideration
Thank you for all you do Mary!
