Jonas Brothers joined more than 200 guests at the home of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman on Sunday, May 16 during the annual Rock For Diabetes event, to help raise funds for the Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. Performing a special show for attendees, the event raised more than $250,000 for the Center.
Francine Kaufman, MD, of Childrens Hospital LA: ‘Nick’s willingness to be so public has made people around the world feel differently about diabetes. It was thrilling to see the smiles on the children’s faces as the Jonas Brothers sang and when Nick talked about his own diabetes. Nick’s willingness to be so public has made people around the world feel differently about diabetes.’
Nick said: ‘We’re excited to be back here at the home of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman this year. Speaking as a person who lives day to day with diabetes, anything we can do to help raise money and awareness to fight this condition, is truly important to us.’ Photo: Business Wire. Video added under!
