I’m a lucky person with one of the best jobs around.
I work with a bunch of kind, smart and amazing people who take great care of me, my family, neighbors and friends who receive their medical care at Hendricks Regional Health.
I also work with a bunch of kind, smart and amazing volunteers who fun raise to help those amazing caregivers take care of me, my family, neighbors and friends at Hendricks Regional Health.
No, it is not a typo. I really do mean fun raise. And out of that fun raising, we are able to do significant fund raising, too. Lucky me!
You may ask yourself, what’s so fun about asking people for money? Well, the truth is we’re asking people to help save lives. To help build healthy families. To help maintain a high quality of life in our community. To give back and say thank you to an organization that is meaningful to donors and their families. To have fun with us at various events and activities that support these great objectives. Who doesn’t like to have fun?
I hope you’ll join us at our next fun raising event – the Treat People Better Award & Auction – on Saturday, November 14. It will be held at the Dallara IndyCar Factory in Speedway beginning at 6:00 p.m. This exciting new venue will accommodate more guests than ever before, and we’re especially pleased to be able to extend this evening of fun to even more people than before.
Sponsorship opportunities are available now, and we’re accepting donations of all kinds of items to feature in silent and live auction packages. Because the event is right before the holidays, it becomes a shopper’s paradise with unique items and experiences not found elsewhere.
Although August may seem a bit early for you to think about a November event, time flies when you’re having fun! We need plenty of advance time to collect and package auction items, write descriptions, and prepare print materials. Plus, we hope you will put it on your calendar now before you get too busy.
Plan now to attend this fun event. Call Jennifer in the Foundation office at 745-7594 to purchase your tickets. Visit our event web site, SupportHendricks.org/awards, to download a sponsor form and get more information soon about our 2015 award recipient.
I hope you’ll join us for fun raising and fund raising on November 14!
