Sponsorship support of the 45th Annual Spring Brass Ring includes Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management, Acrobat & Foley Family Wines and the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel.
Proceeds from the Brass Ring Luncheon will benefit The Guild of the Children’s Diabetes Foundation to fund research at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes, promote diabetes awareness and education, assist families in need, provide scholarships, sponsor important activities for children and families affected by diabetes, and two annual diabetes camps for type 1 children ages 5-13 years old.
Over 40% of Barbara Davis Center patients are uninsured or underinsured and on average, the first year of care for a newly diagnosed type 1 is $20,000. Type 1 diabetes is the only disease where patients and caregivers are making life and death insulin dosing decisions, and they are doing it every hour of every day. The Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes (BDC) provides state-of-the-art care to more than 7,500 active patients: 4,600 children and 2,900 adults with diabetes from the Rocky Mountain Region.
This year’s Co-Chairmen of the Brass Ring Luncheon are Lori Finch and Carol Hamer.
“The Guild of the Children’s Diabetes Foundation is thrilled to be featuring the styles of luxury brand, Club Monaco for the Brass Ring Luncheon & Fashion Show! This will be the first year we have both men’s and women’s designs on the catwalk making it an exciting event for the whole family!”, says Event Co-Chairman, Lori Finch.
