Raising over $1.4 million last year and more than $14.8 million since its inception in 2001, the JDRF Hope Gala is one of Charlotte’s most sought-after and historically successful fundraising events. From the elegant décor to the fine dining to the rockin’ After Party, the Hope Gala is truly a good time for a great cause!
