Why I Support the DRI

"It takes people like those at the DRI to fight this battle.” 
                                                                           -- Barry Gibb


Who
Music legend Barry Gibb


Why he's involved
When he moved to South Florida in the 1970s, he became friendly with members of the DRI Foundation and offered to help.


How he helps
Barry and his wife Linda are "Distinguished Humanitarians" of the DRI Foundation, and serve as the International Chairpersons of the annual Love and Hope Ball, the DRI Foundation's signature gala event in South Florida. Barry has performed numerous times at this event, most recently with Olivia Newton-John.


Why the DRI?
“This is more than just a charity,” Barry said at a recent ball. “It’s a family of people who have worked together for years and years to overcome this terrible disease.

"Today, we are dealing with more than 21 million Americans with diabetes. It takes takes people like those at the DRI to fight this battle."
