The Jack Rua Invitational - September 14, 2021

We are excited to announce that the Jack Rua Invitational will resume on Tuesday, September 14, 2021. Stay tuned for more information on registration and sponsorship.

This year, we will remember our friend Dennis Read, who passed away in January. A dedicated supporter and co-chair of the Jack Rua Invitational for many years, his absence will be unmistakable.

We look forward to welcoming back golfers, sponsors, donors, and friends to the Jack Rua Invitational, as we host the event with a special purpose this year.

The Jack Rua Invitational

The Jack Rua Invitational is in honor of Jack Rua, one of the founding partners of the Rua-Dumont-Audet Insurance Agencies. Jack was devoted to the development of the Diabetes Association, Inc. (DAI) and served as its president. In 2003, our community suffered a tremendous loss when Jack lost his life in an automobile accident. Because Jack’s spirit continues to inspire us, it is with great pleasure that we host the Jack Rua Invitational to benefit the Diabetes Association, Inc., an affiliate organization of People Incorporated.

The Diabetes Association, Inc. fills a need in our community by providing services for children with diabetes, their families, and those who care for them. The DAI has responded to the need for information, support, education, and advocacy for more than 30 years. Additionally, the DAI sponsors Camp Jack, a specialized camp that runs for six weeks in July and August for children ages 5-14 with Type 1 diabetes. Camp Jack is a safe, fun, and welcoming environment for children to actively learn and manage their Type 1 diabetes while making lifelong friends.

People Incorporated’s Diabetes Association, Inc. is accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Education. The goal of the Diabetes Association is to improve the health and well-being of the communities that we serve by advancing diabetes prevention, early detection, education, and disease management.

With the support of the community, business leaders, and the friends of the Diabetes Association, Camp Jack, and People Incorporated, we can honor and continue the mission that Jack started so many years ago!
