Prevail, Inc. will host its Signature Gala this weekend in Carmel.
Set for Aug. 25, the annual event serves as a fundraiser for the Noblesville-based nonprofit that works to prevent emotional, physical and sexual abuse and support those who have experienced it. Since 1986, Prevail has assisted more than 40,000 victims of violent crimes, and in 2017, Prevail provided programs and services to 3,400 survivors.
Funds raised will benefit the organization and its clients. In 2017, more than $170,000 was raised.
The event will kick off at 6 p.m. at the Renaissance Indianapolis North Hotel, 11925 N. Meridian St., Carmel, with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by dinner and silent and live auctions. This year, guests have the opportunity to purchase a golden raffle ticket at the event, which will give the chance of being able to pick out one of the live auction items before bidding begins.
Some live auction items include a “Sip & Sparkle” event with Smith Jewelers in Noblesville, where the highest bidder winning the package will get to shop privately with $2,000 while enjoying Champagne before heading off to a dinner at Matteo’s Ristorante Italiano. Another item includes a behind-the-scenes look at Conner Prairie, but the most high-value live auction item is a “culinary escape” to Italy, which includes dining, airfare and hotel accommodations for two in Rome.
In addition to the auctions, guests will enjoy live music from The Bishops.
The Signature Gala typically sells out at more than 400 people, and ticket sales will end Aug. 20. To purchase tickets and see more auction items, visit wedoauctions.net/prevail.
