reporter Jill Ditmire again served as our beautiful emcee for the evening and, as always, flawlessly entertained everyone. Also, a big shout out to Kate Shepherd
for her emcee’ing assistance throughout the evening. IRC Board President Cassie Stockamp and IRC VP Greg Spratt facilitated the raffle game of Heads or Tails for a chance to win a $500 cash prize, generously sponsored by the 500 Festival
. The raffle earned the IRC over $1,500.
The silent auction was more successful than ever, raising over $8,000 for IRC; we continue to be astonished at the generosity of all those who donated. Scanning through the 100 plus items and themed packages in our silent auction served as a fun backdrop for the bustling cocktail hour, courtesy of the munificent Monarch Beverage Company who donated the best local beer and wine and Hoosier Beverage Association who provided soft drinks.
Thank you to our photographer Craig Moore of Pinhole Image Works
