HARRISON, N.Y. -- The Westchester and Fairfield chapters of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation will honor Purchase's Stagg Family at the 2014 Crystal Ball.
The ball is set for April 26, 2014, at the Greenwich Hyatt Regency in Greenwich. The Stagg Family is set to receive the honor of the Inaugural Founders Award for outstanding volunteerism and community outreach. Kristen Rivera of Westport will serve as the evening’s Fund A Cure Speaker. This annual fundraising event, with dinner and dancing, will feature an exciting evening of entertainment, silent and live auctions, and JDRF’s Fund A Cure.
The Westchester and Fairfield Chapters of JDRF raised over $600,000 for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research last year due to the support of Bayer HealthCare, Acura of Westchester, Brown, Gruttadaro, Gaujean & Prato LLC, ESPN, Gen Re, Nestle Waters North America, Stamford Hospital and our family sponsors.
The Stagg Family became involved in JDRF after Amanda Stagg was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2003.
Mark and Theresa Stagg have served on the Board of the Westchester County Chapter, and their children, Ryan (20), Tyler (18), Justin (16), Amanda (13), and Ashley (11) all volunteered at the JDRF office and at the Walk to Cure Diabetes. Tyler and Justin have also donated their time and skill participating in the “Play with the Kid” raffle at the Annual JDRF Golf Event. Team Amanda has collectively raised more than $350,000 and counting for T1D research.
