While most food and drink lovers can can sip and munch away at will, those with Type 1 diabetes aren’t so lucky.

On March 23, join a handful of restaurants, mixologists, and judges for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) benefit, Sip, Savor & Celebrate.

Enjoy food from restaurants such as Reilly Craft Pizza & Drink, Reforma, and The Living Room, while eight mixologists compete for the 2018 “Mix Madness” crown. The competition features judges Isabella Joffroy from Yelp, On The Menu Live’s Matt Russell, and Tucson Foodie founder Adam Lehrman.

The event also features Borderlands Brewing, Dillinger Brewing, and New Belgium Brewing.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding Type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults suddenly. T1D has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle and there is nothing one can do to prevent it. Presently, there is no cure.

Tickets for the event are $125 and can be purchased at
