Brew the Cure: See You There!

At 214 Eats, what do we love more than food? Food with a cause! We love supporting a fantastic organization while enjoying good eats! 

The Young Leadership Committee of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is hosting its 5th Annual Brew the Cure on Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM at Henderson Tap House in Dallas. 

This awesome event will feature phenomenal live music, a continuous pour of incredible local brews, yummy food, exciting raffle prizes, and tons of fun! Since the event started in 2012, Brew the Cure has raised more than $80,000 to support JDRF’s cause. 

Sponsors for this year’s Brew the Cure include the Orix Foundation and CMS Strategic Partners. 

JDRF is the leading global organization focused on fighting type 1 diabetes research. Currently, there is no cure for type 1 diabetes, and no way to prevent it. JDRF funds research that drives scientific progress to deliver new treatments and therapies for those that live with the reality of type 1 diabetes. 

JDRF helps to identify and invest in therapies that prove promising in their early stages. “This investment strategy ensures that the most life-changing breakthroughs can make it through the long research, development and delivery process and get to people living with type 1 diabetes sooner.” 

JDRF also hopes to develop a vaccination that will hopefully prevent type 1 diabetes from the beginning. The vaccine would prevent the autoimmune attack on the cells that produce insulin. JDRF is also working towards therapies that can prevent people with type 1 diabetes from becoming dependent on insulin therapy. 

Individual tickets for the event are $30. To buy tickets, click here. Tickets include free beer (3 tickets each), yummy food (light buffet), exciting raffle prizes, and live entertainment! 

Henderson Tap House is located at 2323 N Henderson Avenue, Dallas, TX75206. 

Food, Beer, Good Cause? See you there!
