Sam Billetdeaux has an Elephant!

What? Did I read that right? An elephant?

Yes, sort of…

In February, the Billetdeaux family visited the Diabetes Research Institute
in Miami and attended our annual Love and Hope Ball fundraising gala.

Sam fell in love…with an “elephant” in the silent auction. He bid on it to
support the cure-focused research he had just seen up close. And he won!
Then, he asked the attendees of CWD's FFL Conference and the DOC to help name it!

Beta Cellephant is the winning name!  Thanks to the Jarcho Family from Ridgefield, Connecticut!

And the Grand Prize winner, who will choose from one of five Disney Luxury Villas to reside in for five nights, enjoying The Most Magical Place on Earth is…the Hrinkevich Family from Westfield, New Jersey!
