Snapshot: Ringing In the Holly Days


By Tonya Burton

On Dec. 4, the Assistance League of Indianapolis hosted a beautiful style show and luncheon at the Ritz Charles in Carmel. The nearly sold-out event was attended by First Lady Karen Pence, as well as other local luminaries. The luncheon was the third fundraiser this year to benefit ALI programs, which include ALI Bears, a program that provides cuddly, child-safe teddy bears dressed in t-shirts to children facing difficult emotional crises. ALI Friends also provides activities at Joy’s House, an adult not-for-profit day care center. Additionally, the organization provides Assault Provider kits to victims of assault. Perhaps one of the most labor intensive, but equally rewarding program is Operation School Bell, which provides clothing to underserved school children.

The Secret Ingredient store of Indianapolis and Kits and Kaboodle Classic Toys of Carmel donated 10 percent of the day’s proceeds to ALI programs. Carol Valentine, Chairman of Grants, hosted major grant donors who have generously supported ALI programs throughout the years.
