Due to COVID-19, this year’s Dine, Dance and Donate will be postponed to October 1, 2022. Our venue and band are booked for that date, please save the date and join us for an evening of fun, hope and fundraising.

2021 will mark the 3rd annual Dine, Dance, and Donate event dedicated to advancing the mission of Team Telomere. We, as an organization, strive to provide information and support services to families worldwide affected by Dyskeratosis Congenita and other Telomere Biology Disorders, as these diagnoses can be daunting. We also encourage the medical community’s research in finding causes and effective treatments for these ailments, as well as facilitate improved diagnosis by educating medical providers on the signs. In 2019, our event hosted 140 individuals and raised both awareness and funds to advance progress in the research of Telomere Biology Disorders. The advancements we have seen in this community could not have been made possible without the incredible support of each one of YOU! This year, we will continue to celebrate those whose efforts make our dream a reality. We hope that you will join us at the 3rd annual Dine, Dance, and Donate and that you’ll consider supporting the Telomere Biology Disorders Community!
