Promise to Keep

Colorful Cuba served as the inspiration for the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation’s annual Promise Ball. Nearly 1,000 galagoers — including members of the JDRF Young Leadership Committee, which hosted a Champagne-fueled afterparty — filled the ballroom of the Hilton Americas. Popular party band Skyrocket performed, and handsome H-Town magician Ben Jackson also put on a show for guests, who spent the evening savoring Cuban fare and playing casino games. A pair of successful auctions, featuring items like a yellow lab puppy and a trip to Italy, helped bring the total till to more than $1.6 million.
