SDCCU was a proud sponsor of the 16th annual benefit for Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute (SWDI). The fundraiser was held Thursday, Aug. 13, at Humphrey’s by the Bay, 2241 Shelter Island Dr., San Diego. The Rhythm of the Night themed event featured a performance by N’Demand, a gourmet dinner and silent and live auctions.
SDCCU’s support of SWDI includes Project Dulce, a diabetes care and education program that addresses the specific needs of diabetes patients in the greater San Diego area. The project is dedicated to “Diabetes Excellence Across Communities,” with a mission of improving the lives of people with diabetes through community-based diabetes management, education and support programs.
SDCCU’s support helps Project Dulce deliver a series of courses and educational resources that instruct and engage patients in preventing, managing and avoiding complications related to diabetes to help improve their lives. The partnership support also allows SWDI to provide a minimum of 125 diabetes screenings, education and referrals at community events.
“SDCCU aims to support programs and initiatives that promote a vibrant, healthy and sustainable community. We are proud to partner with Scripps to deliver Project Dulce—a program that is doing just that, helping to provide education and resources to improve the lives of individuals with diabetes,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.
Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute’s mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals with gestational, Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes through innovative educational programs, clinical expertise, leading-edge research and professional cross-disciplinary collaborations in pursuit of prevention and a cure.
