STORE Capital Supports Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)

STORE Capital Corporation (NYSE: STOR), an internally managed net-lease real estate investment trust (REIT) that invests in Single Tenant Operational Real Estate, is proud to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) as Gold Sponsor of the 2016 Promise Ball Gala: "An Evening of Gratitude" being held November 12, 2016, in Scottsdale, Arizona. Christopher H. Volk, President and CEO of STORE Capital, and his family are this year's honorees.

"Our family has volunteered for the JDRF ever since our son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of seven," said Christopher H. Volk. "Since then, the leadership, coordinated research and advocacy undertaken by the JDRF have made a meaningful difference in our lives, for which we are grateful. This year, the money raised at the gala will be applied to encapsulation research, which is a game-changing initiative having the potential to alleviate the burden of this disease. My family and STORE Capital are honored to support scientific progress that seeks to make day-to-day life with Type 1 diabetes easier, safer and healthier."

JDRF's annual Promise Ball is one of Arizona's largest fundraising galas attracting nearly 700 society and industry leaders from across the city. The black-tie event includes live and silent auctions, dancing and entertainment, providing the perfect occasion to celebrate the progress JDRF is making and support ongoing life-changing therapies to positively impact the lives of millions living with Type 1 diabetes.
