The Hope Gala

On March 2nd, the Florida Suncoast Chapter JDRF is hosting it’s 7th Annual Hope Gala ~ The Illumination Ball at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida honoring Mr David Collar.

JDRF is the leading global organization focused on type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF’s research mission is to discover, develop and deliver advances that cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes.  As the global leader in the fight against type 1 diabetes, JDRF’s research programs are comprehensive — addressing all aspects of the disease for the best quality of life and a cure for this disease.

One of the great sponsors of the event is Cambria, the only American Quartz manufacturer. Cambria is a family owned company that started in the late 90’s making slabs for DuPont.

As part of the Hope Gala, Cambria has donated  The Ultimate Kitchen package that will be auctioned off by Cheryl Tiegs. This incredible package is worth over $45,000. In addition to $10,000 in Cambria countertops, the package contains design consultation services, cabinetry, Benjamin Moore Paint and  Kohler fixtures. Who wouldn’t be excited to bid on this prize?  Cambria has informed me they decided not to move forward with this event this year.

If someone you know has type 1 diabetes, this may be a great event for you to attend. For more information, visit

  1. Thank you, Ann. Cambria is the best quartz because it is domestic. I got my sample boxes and there are over 100 colors. Check stock before specifying. Caesar Stone is made in Israel and Silestone is made in Spain. How is that green if you install it in America?
