Our Annual Gala

Stay tuned for 2018 Gala date!

Our annual Gala is held in August, which is a night of cultural celebration honoring the courage and strength of refugees who have made Indiana their home. You will enjoy international cuisine, wine and beer, live music, and a silent auction. All proceeds from the Gala strengthen our efforts to welcome refugees to Indianapolis and provide the resources they need to rebuild their lives.

Our 2017 Gala at The Conrad Indianapolis sold out with 300+ attendees, and we reached our $20,000 fundraising goal for the night. Our featured guest speaker was Mohamad. A refugee, college graduate, and brother still hoping one day to reunite with his brother and family, Mohamed called the audience to not take pity on his story, but to use it to change the world, or even begin by welcoming refugees in their local community.
