The evening’s program and live auction will be held from 8-9pm and dancing until midnight with music provided by The Meatball Band. A silent auction will run throughout the evening. Proceeds generated from the event will benefit the women and children who reside at the shelter. A host of businesses from central Indiana support this cause through various sponsorship levels.
