JDRF Southwest Ohio chapter’s Lights! Camera! Take Action! Summer Soirée will take place on Friday, June 27, 2014 at the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center in Dayton. The Summer Soirée is an annual cocktail party which raises more than $150,000 toward JDRF’s mission: to improve the lives of those who have type 1 diabetes and to fund research to find a cure for this disease.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m., the event will feature dinner, dancing, and music. Along with the food and entertainment, there will be both a live and silent auction, as well as a Fund a Cure, which is a live auction to raise money for research. Kim Faris, from Hot Country 94.5 FM, will be entertaining the crowd as emcee for the evening. This year’s Soireé promises to be a spectacular time, attracting over 300 supporters to the ever-popular event.
