Silent Auction

100 percent of the 2017 proceeds (minus administration costs) from silent auction bids will be donated to the Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation. The Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation (HVAF) helps homeless veterans return to self-sufficiency and engages at risk veterans to prevent them from becoming homeless by providing supportive housing, case management, food, hygiene and clothing as well as other essential services.

Last year, the silent auction raised over $5,500 for the Felege Hiywot Center and Stop the Violence Indianapolis. This year, with your help, we are looking to set a new record!
