The Great Reveal

Many years ago when our sweet 7 year old chose a team name, we became Trey’s Avengers. Because what seven year old doesn’t love a good superhero! Since then, it feels like we have been them all. We can’t help but feel very thankful that Marvel continues to pop out their movies and add to their universe, so that we can add to ours. Seriously Marvel, thank you!

So here we are in our 7th year and we have had some super fun themes for our team:

  • 2013 – Hulk – Smashing Diabetes (green)
  • 2014 – Captain America – Slashing Diabetes (bright blue)
  • 2015 – Iron Man – Attacking Type 1 Diabetes (maroon)
  • 2016 – Thor – Hammering Type 1 Diabetes (gray)
  • 2017 – Wolverine – Slashing Type 1 Diabetes (dark blue)
  • 2018 – Spiderman – Fight Type 1 Diabetes (red)

Where does that leave us? Ok, lets be honest, we are running low on the good ones. But we still have a few more up our sleeves and this one is pretty fun. So announcing for 2019:

Rocket Racoon – Rocketing to a Cure!

Look at that, even that model looks happy about it! We can’t wait to rock these with Trey on Walk Day. If you are there, come find us – your generosity has already earned us a tent on Donor Row and we are already planning a fun Guardians of the Galaxy themed photo booth.

Thank you for all your support and all you do for Trey’s Avengers and the JDRF. Walk Day is just one month from today – so yes, there is still time! Looking to donate? You can click the DONATE NOW button on the top menu bar and it will take you there!

$2,500 raised at Trey’s Avengers 1st Annual Cornhole Tournament

Wow!  What a day we had yesterday!  Our hearts are just over-flowing with gratitude for everyone involved with our first ever Cornhole Tournament!  $2,500 for JDRF! Where do I even start!

We filled THIRTY ONE of our thirty two spots – so close!  And we had a great group of people out.  Tons of spectators and friends!

We appreciate everyone who came out to join us – those who played, everyone who donated or bought raffle tickets, our volunteers, our friends and the fine folks at our sponsor, Hurleys!  The kid’s had a great time in our kid’s are and on stage, calling time, announcing games and pulling raffle tickets!   They were naturals.

One of this tournaments special rules was the ‘Cheats for Charity’ – $3 let a team jump around, steal bags and slap them out of the way all to increase their chances at victory.  We had one team swat a bag into the Bocce court!  Soo much fun to watch and of course, meant lots of extra cash for JDRF!

In the end, after almost 5 hours of play, our champions were crowned, winning a set of custom made cornhole boards.  Second and third place team took home Prize packs donated by Innsbrook merchants.  Congrats gentlemen, you all played hard!

 

Thank you all for your support!

JDRF Gala – 2016

The Annual JDRF Gala is an amazing event and for the past few years our family has been fortunate enough to be given the opportunity as volunteers.  At the Gala we help raise over $250,000 in one evening with the help of amazing attendees, corporate sponsors and auction donations and winners.

This year I (Danielle) was asked to be one of the event photographers.  Capturing the perfection of this event at the Jefferson Hotel was so much fun.

But of course, my favorite part (to watch and photograph) was Trey as one of the JDRF Youth Ambassadors.  He has a few responsibilities as Youth Ambassador, such as writing Thank You notes to donors.  But the best part is one of the last events of the evening – the ‘Fund A Cure’ Auction.  Each of the kids is “auctioned” off at a set dollar amount.  Because it was his 10th birthday that night, Trey was given the $10,000 slot.

Each Ambassador was also given a moment to tell a bit of their story of being a Type 1 Diabetic – how it affected their lives or why they hoped for a cure.  I sat in the audience with tears in my eyes.  Trey did awesome and made us all proud.

 

Thank you to our Donors & Corporate Sponsors

Each year we owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to our corporate sponsors.  They help to contribute almost $3,000 to our efforts to support the JDRF.

So first, our thanks to our tee-shirt sponsors.  There generous contribution earns them a spot on our tee shirts.

 

Additionally, our gratitude to the many businesses who donate amazing raffle tickets to our event each years.

 

 

Assemble for a Cure 2014

This was our inaugural event for Trey’s Avengers.  It was a huge leap of faith and a huge success.

Friends, family and beer drinking fans were invited out to Triple Crossing Brewing for live music, great raffles and a bit of Type 1 Awareness.
