SWEET SUCCESS GALA SET FOR NOVEMBER 5 IN PERRYSBURG

TOLEDO, Ohio, Oct. 25, 2010 – The Carranor Hunt & Polo Club, Perrysburg, will be the setting for the 2010 Sweet Success Gala Friday, Nov. 5, from 6:30 to 10 p.m. The event is the fifth annual fundraiser for Diabetes Youth Services (DYS).

The Sweet Success Gala helps to fund educational services for more than 3,000 children in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan living with type 1 diabetes. DYS teaches children and their families to manage their diabetes on a daily basis through summer camps and year-round programming. DYS is also the only area resource to local schools in providing training for school staff.

Gourmet grazing stations and a cash bar will be a highlight of the event. Featured will be a wide range of unique and interesting items, offered in silent and live auction formats. Among the auction items will be travel packages, sports tickets and theatre and music experiences. In addition, a live auction will help to fund campers and advisors at the DYS education camps Big Shots and Little Shots each summer.

Serving as host for the evening’s activities, and leading the live auctions will be Beth Rose of Beth Rose Auction, Toledo.

“Every day is sweet success when you learn to live with your diabetes,” said Angie Rush, DYS gala chair. “In acknowledging national Diabetes Awareness month of November, our Sweet Success Gala is a celebration of hope and courage.”
