REVENT, the IRC’s annual fundraising gala, was held on Saturday, November 7 on the campus of Goodwill Industries in the gym of Indianapolis Metropolitan High School located near downtown Indy at 1635 W. Michigan Street.
WFYI reporter Jill Ditmire served as our emcee for the evening and did a wonderful job entertaining attendees. IRC Board President Cassie Stockamp facilitated the “Head or Tails” raffle of two Southwest Airline tickets which raised over $2,000 for the IRC. Our art and entertainment themed auction raised over $8,000 for IRC programs and served as a fun backdrop for the cocktail hour. We are grateful for all of the donations we received for the auction which can be found HERE. We are also grateful to Monarch Beverage for donating beer and wine to our event, Hoosier Beverage Association for donating sodas, Bazbeaux Pizza and Jimmy Johns for donating food for our volunteers, Fresh Market, The Best Chocolate in Town and Insomnia Cookies for donating dessert, Lindsey Gerlach for being our official photographer, Laura Walters of Pattern Indy and Style Riot for being our official vintage/thrifty/upcycled/artsy fashion contest judge and to everyone who participated in the contest!
