Race for the Cure is a thoroughbred evening of racing fun, gourmet food and spectacular auction lots on Thursday 7th May in aid of JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). 188 guests will enjoy the racing banter of Frankie Dettori and Brough Scott, a champagne reception and delicious three-course meal at Frankie Dettori and Marco-Pierre White's glamorous restaurant "Frankie's Italian Bar & Grill" in Knightsbridge.

Included in a fantastic range of 30 lots is a private box for 15 to see Michael Jackson live at the O2, a rugby coaching session for 12 with former All Blacks captain Zinzan Brooke and a three day snowboarding masterclass in Verbier with UK Freeboarding Champion and professional snowboarder Chris Southwell.

Nat's lot is at the 29. You'll bid on a lunch date with Nat, at Alain Ducasse's two Michelin star winning restaurant at the beautiful Dorchester Hotel in London (UK). The actual date is to be agreed by both parties. This lot is generously donated by Nathaniel Parker and Alain Ducasse.

You can view all lots for this fund raiser and bid for them online, both prior to the event and on the night itself, at BuyOnceGiveTwice. Please be aware that this lot is going into an silent auction at Frankie's Bar & Grill on 7th May 2009.  The item will be taken off BuyOnceGiveTwice at midday on 7th May - however you can still bid for it - either by entering your maximum bid into the auto-bid box of this lot or emailing the address provided so they can update you throughout the evening on 7th May so you don't miss out!

Lot 13 promises to be the highlight of the evening again after raising over £50,000 in 2008. This is a special opportunity for people to donate money directly to one of JDRF's most important current research projects, the Adolescent Type 1 Diabetes Intervention Trial (AdDIT). Based out of the University of Cambridge, AdDIT is a large international clinical trial which will look at whether proven adult blood pressure drugs, such as Statins and ACE inhibitors, can reduce the risk of cardiovascular and kidney disease in young people. By working with high risk adolescents, this study will help them to find out whether they can prevent these devastating complications at the earliest stage.

About JDRF
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation exists to find the cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications, and is the world's largest charitable funder of type 1 diabetes research.  It was founded by a small group of parents of children with type 1 diabetes who recognised that insulin injections are not the cure for this life threatening and lifelong condition.

JDRF in the UK, affiliated to JDRF International (based in the USA), was founded in 1986. It is an independent charity with its own Board of Directors and registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales.

At a global level JDRF volunteers and staff have been responsible for raising over £600 million to support type 1 diabetes research since the charity's inception. JDRF raises money to drive world-class research to prevent, treat and cure type 1 diabetes and its serious and debilitating complications. For 30 years we have been fundamentally involved in the delivery of advances in this field; seeking out, assessing and monitoring the best science to drive the breakthroughs that improve management of type 1 diabetes and will ultimately cure the condition. Please feel free to contact JDRF at this address for more information.
