At the Gala, The DRIF’s Scientific Director, Matthias von Herrath, M.D., shared some of the latest developments in the field of diabetes research. Gala guests were entertained by live music, a luxury silent auction, dancing under the stars and more. They were wowed by a special performance by acclaimed speed painter Revel, who painted the evening’s first live auction item upside down, keeping guests and bidders guessing up to the last minute, until he flipped it around to reveal a beautiful pop rendition of the Venus de Milo. The live auction was conducted by Tonight Show  Comedian Seth Herzog as auctioneer and emcee.
