ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Hundreds gathered at Ballpark Village Saturday night for a gala fundraiser with one goal in mind.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation(JDRF) held their annual Hope Gala to help find a cure for Type 1 diabetes (T1D). News 4's Russell Kinsaul served as the emcee for the event which raised more than $845,000. 

T1D  is an autoimmune disease that occurs when a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, the hormone that controls blood-sugar levels. The disease affects children and adults and has no known cure to prevent it. 

Kinsaul has been the emcee for the JDRF gala for over 7 years.

All donations will go towards researching to find a cure. Both St. Louis University and Washington University have programs dedicated to researching and finding the cure.

    It’s been a rough few weeks for those who help abandoned, neglected or lost animals. Earlier this month there were two separate incidents in which SUVs were stolen from those trying to help animals and just last Friday, a truck belonging to Stray Rescue was stolen.
