Mom’s Night Out Event to Benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Posted Nov 11 2008 4:31am
Juvenile diabetes, or type 1, is usually diagnosed in children, teenagers, and young adults, although adults can develop it. It is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s own immune system destroys the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas, and, therefore, is the insulin-dependent form of diabetes. The exact cause is not entirely understood, and there is currently no known cure. In the US, more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with this disease each year.
Do you live in or near Seattle? If so, you can take part in an event to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. On November 21st, The Dapper Baby, a shopping and social networking website, will be hosting the “Fantasy and Fairytales Mom’s Night Out Benefit” to raise money for juvenile diabetes research.
The event will include wine and hors d’ourves, complimentary eyebrow design, mini manicures, chair massages, botox, tarot card readings, and more. The event will start with kids modeling this seasons designer and eco-chic fashions.
We think this would be a wonderful treat for yourself as an overworked mom, or a great gift for a mom who needs a few hours of fun away from the kids.
