Carousel Ball raises $1.3 million for children's diabetes programs
The best part of this benefit for the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes wasn't just the chance to see NFL Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway and his wife, Paige, receive the 2015 High Hopes Tribute Award and enjoy a show featuring 16-time Grammy winner David Foster, Usher, Ruben Studdard, Kelly Levesque and the Forte Tenors. It was hearing Barbara Davis herself say that the $1.3 million raised by the 1,200 guests will bring researchers one step closer to finding a cure. Usher's interest in the Barbara Davis Center stems from the fact that his son, Usher Raymond V, was recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. The youngster helped launch the evening's program by delivering the blessing.
