2018 Carnival For A Cure Westbury NY

Families Become Players for a Diabetes Cure

Big play turned into big smiles as flashing neon lights and loud beeps of the latest arcade games excited attendees during Carnival for a Cure, a day full of family-fun activities to raise funds for the Diabetes Research Institute and its mission to find a cure for diabetes. 

On March 4, hundreds of adults and kids experienced an unforgettable day of amusement including video games, bowling, pool, face painting, bounce houses, live music, delicious lunch buffet and great prizes inside Dave & Busters in Westbury. This year’s Carnival for a Cure raised more than $94,000 for diabetes research.

“I am so happy that the Carnival for a Cure was a huge success and I’m already excited for what’s to come next year,” said event co-chair Edra Tepper, who has type 1 diabetes. “So many happy faces supporting their friends and loved ones with type 1. It couldn’t be a better way to raise money for diabetes research.”

The Carnival for a Cure co-chairs and committee would like to thank all the generous sponsors for making this year’s event such a success.
