Kiki's Krew raises funds for JDRF

kiki3Kiki’s Krew, a West Boca team, has been busy raising funds for the JDRF. JDRF, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, helps to improve the lives of people affected by type 1 diabetes through research and programs. Recently, Kiki’s Krew raised $1000 selling colored sneakers at Water’s Edge Elementary School.
Yesterday, Kiki’s Krew organized a luncheon at the Boca Country Club. Over 90 people attended the luncheon to raise money for JDRF.  The day included tennis, a silent auction, a boutique and raffle. Lunch was a delicious buffet and dessert.
Nicole Cohen, a JDRF youth ambassador, spoke about being diagnosed at age 9. Kiki’s Krew was created in honor of Nicole by her parents to raise money for the JDRF.
