15 years ago, the Crisis Center made a bold move to hold a social-style fundraiser to help with its expanding range of services.

The first event; held at the Performing Arts Center raised just over $15,000.

Who would have guessed that 15 years later, the event would raise over a quarter-million dollars annually.

It's all because of YOUR overwhelming generosity and support in the name of improving the lives of NWI's children & families.

This anniversary is a celebration of thanks to each and every attendee, bidder, committee-person, volunteer and contributor since 1995.
