An evening of old-time Hollywood glamour, complete with larger-than-life golden Oscar statues, drew a record-setting crowd of more than 500 for the 18th Annual JDRF Miracles Gala – One Night in Old Hollywood – at Ponte Vedra’s Sawgrass Marriott Nov. 3. 

The star-studded event generated a whopping $600,000 – the most ever raised at a JDRF fundraiser. Kristina Greco and Kasey Repass co-chaired the event with an eye to transforming the yearly fundraiser into a million-dollar gala within three years.

A $100,000 donation by Fund A Cure Champions Jennifer Glock and Michael Ward of San Marco was the largest single gift ever received by JDRF North Florida. The Van Zant family donated $50,000 on behalf of the Lynyrd Skynyrd Foundation. 

Bill Hughes received the foundation’s Living and Giving Award for generating over $100,000 over 10 years through the foundation’s One Walk Program.
