The third annual Crystal Ball Gala was held on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at the St. Clair Centre for the Arts. Over 400 people attended this Mardi Gras inspired event in support of children living with Type 1 Diabetes.

The event featured a special appearance by Kyle Cochrane, a competitor on the television program “American Ninja Warrier.” Cochrane has Type 1 Diabetes and shared that one of his main motivations for wanting to compete on the program was to show that diabetes does not have to be an obstacle.

Lorraine Gagnon, chairperson of the Crystal Ball Gala, was thrilled with the response to this year’s gala.

“It is heartwarming every year to see the people who attend this event in support of the Metabolic Unit at Windsor Regional Hospital and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.”
