Get Involved

The PADRE (Pediatric-Adolescent Diabetes Research and Education) Foundation plays a critical role in the education and support of children with Type 1 Diabetes and their families. We ask that you partner with us, as a participant and or donor, and be a vital part in the success of our largest annual fundraising event. 

For 28 years, PADRE hosts an annual fashion show that highlights our children and teens, performing and modeling in the latest fashions, compliments of Macy’s. 
This highly anticipated program serves as a major psychosocial event for our children and their families.  This event not only provides an essential connection, but the funds needed to support our educational programs. 
This year we’re celebrating our 28th Annual Fashion Show Gala, and will be held at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa on Saturday, May 13, 2017.
