Treat your Valentine to an unforgettable evening complete with fabulous food, spectacular décor, music, dancing and more at the Love and Hope Royal Ball. This black-tie gala will reach its pinnacle when former Bee Gee Barry Gibb takes the stage, along with a 9-piece band, including his son, Stephen Gibb.

Scheduled to be held at the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood on February 14, this anniversary occasion will celebrate the 35th year of Love and Hope, whose mission it is to support the cure-focused work of the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI).

For decades, Gibb and his wife, Linda, have served as Love and Hope International Chairmen, as well as honorary members of the DRI Foundation’s board of directors. Following in the steps of their parents, the Gibb children, Stephen and Gloria, Ashley and Therese, Travis and Stacey, Michael, and Ali Gibb, pledged to continue the Gibb legacy as they debuted as the first Young Society Honorees at last year’s Love and Hope Ball.

This year, you can make Valentine’s Day memories at the Love and Hope Royal Ball. Seating is limited; don’t wait to reserve your tickets. The cost is $500 per person. Contact the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation today at 800.321.3437. Visit for more information.

The Diabetes Research Institute, a center of excellence at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, is a recognized world leader in cure-focused research. Since its inception in the early 1970s, the DRI has made significant contributions to the field of diabetes research, pioneering many of the techniques used in islet transplantation. From innovations in islet isolation and transplant procedures to advances in cell biology and immunology, the DRI is now harnessing the power of emerging technologies to develop new cell-based therapies to restore insulin production. For the millions of families already affected by diabetes who are looking to the world of science for answers, the Diabetes Research Institute is the best hope for a cure.
