OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The JDRF Promise Gala, an annual event to raise money for type 1 diabetes research, raised over one million dollars last weekend despite challenging weather conditions.

The 22nd annual event, organized by the JDRF Omaha-Council Bluffs Chapter, raised more than $1.6 million to help accelerate important breakthroughs aimed to cure, prevent, and treat type 1 diabetes and its complications.
