About Our Auction

Our goal in holding this auction is two fold. First, we are raising money to fund scholarships to send at least 30 kids to Camp Colorado. Camp Colorado is a one week camp near Colorado Springs held by the American Diabetes Association (ADA). This camp is exclusively for children with type 1 diabetes (T1D). In 2015, the Type 1 Diabetes Optimist Club (T1DOC) raised enough money to help send 27 kids to camp and in 2016 we helped send 30 kids to camp. Without these scholarships, some of these kids would not have the opportunity to attend camp. To learn more about Camp Colorado, please visit their website at http://www.diabetes.org/in-my-community/diabetes-camp/camps/colorado.html.

The second goal of this auction is to make a donation directly to JDRF. JDRF is the leading global organization funding T1D research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is one of the few organizations with the scientific resources, policy influence, and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.

As the largest charitable supporter of T1D research, JDRF is currently sponsoring more than $568 million in scientific research in 17 countries.

Please help us help kids and JDRF today! Enjoy browsing through the items in our auction and remember all proceeds from the auction will benefit the kids and JDRF.
