November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and Carb DM is celebrating with a bang! Join us on Saturday November 16 for a Big Blue Happy Hour in honor of World Diabetes Day. We’re partnering with Project 50-in-50 to celebrate the diabetes community and to honor the achievements, big and small, of people living with Type 1 diabetes.
Meet Patrick Mertes and Michael Shelver, the dynamic duo from Project 50-in-50 who climbed to the highest point in each of the 50 US states in just 50 days. It’s thought only 274 people have hit all 50 high points. Only a handful have done it within the 50-day deadline — and the team accomplished it while navigating the highs and lows of Type 1 diabetes!
Bid on fabulous items to raise money for local diabetes programs. Auction items include:
- Sailing Excursion on the Bay
- Drive a Tesla Model S for a Weekend
- Tasting at Castillo di Amorosa
- Dinner at Roadhouse 29
- Tour the HP Garage aka the “Birthplace of Silicon Valley”
- Private Pixar Tour for 8
- Meet and Greets with luminaries, like the Katie diSimone from Looped
- or Howard Look, the CEO and Founder of Tidepool
