On June 18, JDRF hosted “Uncorking the Cure: Tapping into Hope” at the Saratoga National Golf Club. The evening featured tastings of wine from Treasury Wine Estates and Victory View Vineyard, beer from Lake Placid Brewing Co., and spirits from Springbrook Farm Distillery.

The drinks were accompanied by food from Prime at Saratoga National, including a pairing station, hors d’oeuvres, and flat bread pizza. Live and silent auctions rounded out the evening, giving attendees the opportunity to win a vast array of prizes from local businesses and donors. Live auction prizes included a Lake George family vacation, a box at Saratoga Race Course, and premium tickets to a Yankees game.

JDRF is the leading global organization helping adults and children suffering from Type 1 Diabetes, many of whom were guests at the event. The evening’s main speaker, Kristen Caponera, shared her experience living with diabetes with the crowd. All proceeds from the auctions contributed to the more than $1.9 billion JDRF has funded since its founding in 1970.
