)-- MMI Public Relations (http://www.mmipublicrelations.com), a Raleigh-based, full-service public relations firm, has announced that President Patty Briguglio will serve on the committee for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Triangle/Eastern N.C. Chapter’s 8th Annual Hope Gala. The event will take place Saturday, April 30 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds to research the cause of, and cure for juvenile (Type 1) diabetes and its complications. Generous corporate, family and individual support are instrumental to the success of the JDRF. Since its inception in 2004, the Hope Gala has become a focal point of the chapter’s fundraising efforts, raising more than $3 million.
“The JDRF Hope Gala is a key cause as far as diabetes research,” said Briguglio. “One of the reasons I am so proud to have MMI involved is because of how the organization and its volunteers strive to educate the Raleigh community on juvenile diabetes. It is this very education and awareness that leads to productive, results-driven research and developments in the medical community as it relates to juvenile diabetes.”
