Last night, October 9, 2014, was the UC Irvine Health Diabetes Center’s annual fundraising cocktail party. The Art of the Cure was the theme of this year’s event held at the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, CA. It was yet another success for the center’s record books, boasting over 200 guests all in support of one cause–curing diabetes.
This short, but sweet, party is always enjoyable as guests are treated to wine and brews, alongside the incomparable tastings of gourmet caterer Thank Goodness It’s Sofia, all set to the backdrop of soothing jazz melodies provided by a live band. There was also the added enjoyment of trying your luck at the prize wheel, where you could win anything from Pilates classes, to ballroom dance lessons. This year featured a new winning opportunity with the wine wall, and always present, the crowd-pleasing, silent auction. The auction, this year, offered week-long getaways to locales such as Hawaii, Mammoth, as well as signed memorabilia from superstar athletes like San Diego Charger’s quarterback, Philip Rivers, and tennis superstar, Maria Sharapova.
UCI Diabetes Center’s is one of our favorite events of the year, one we always look forward to, and one in which we are never disappointed. This year’s party was no different! We are so honored to contribute and to be a part of such an amazing cause. We cannot wait to see what’s in store for next year!
