On Thursday, December 4, Assistance League® of Indianapolis hosted “Ringing in the Holly Days”, their Annual Holiday Luncheon and Style Show. This fundraising event has become a Holiday tradition for member volunteers and their guests. All attending appreciated this festive celebration that kicks off the holiday season by enjoying the luncheon, style show, silent auction, raffle, and the opportunity for shopping. An added bonus to the day is that proceeds raised benefits the organization’s philanthropic programs.
The 2014 Holiday Luncheon Committee, was headed by chairmen Rosy Crowley and Rose Conrad. The beautiful invitations for the event were designed by Kathy Detzler. It was held at the Ritz Charles in Carmel and the decorating committee led by Jane Edington followed through with the theme by decking the room out in lovely holly and bells. The day began with a silent auction filled with many unique items and coordinated by Sharon Gleason and Deb Myers. Adding to the fun was a raffle for a chance to win one of two “Gift Card Trees”. The $1,120 worth of gift cards were donated by Chris Cunningham, owner of Service Plus Heating and Cooling, Mr. and Mrs. Keith Gambrel, and Mr. and Mrs. Rick Sanfrey. The beautiful decorated trees were a gift from Kathy Wylam. Attendees enjoyed shopping for clothing and accessories from The Secret Ingredient, an Indianapolis boutique and children’s toys from Kits & Kaboodle Classic Toys. Both retailers donated ten percent of sales made that day to Assistance League.
Assistance League of Indianapolis is grateful for the generous support of the luncheon’s attendees. Funds raised at this wonderful event enable the organization to continue with their mission of caring and commitment to serving children and adults in the community.
