It’s a great event for a great cause, as we are joined by Kelly McBride, Executive Director of the Domestic Violence Network, who is here to talk to us about the Domestic Violence Network’s annual fundraising event – Night with the Network presented by Tilson. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and everyone is encouraged to wear PURPLE to the event to show support. Funds from this event will stay right here in Central Indiana and be used to provide assistance to survivors of domestic violence. DVN uses these funds in many ways: Helping survivors become self sufficient, training for service providers who are on the front lines when a someone calls for help. DVN also use the funds to offer programming at local schools that teach kids about healthy relationships and to train businesses how to recognize and respond if they suspect an employee is being abused. This year 8 of the homicides in Marion County have been domestic violence-related. Night with the Network will feature an array of food dishes and drinks provided by local restaurants & brewers including Sangiovese Ristorante, 317 Burger, 240sweet, Sun King and Bier Brewery. Sangiovese Ristorante is one of the featured restaurants. Cigar and bourbon tasting. All proceeds benefit DVN’s mission of engaging the community to end domestic violence. The event is Friday, October 14th at Crane Bay Event Center 7 – 10 p.m., $100/ticket. There is also a VIP hour from 6-7pm hosted by IndyCar driver Ed Carpenter. VIP tickets are $150
Here to bring us a taste of the food at this event is Chris Evans, CEO of Sangiovese Ristorante. He’s prepared a spicy and savory meatball that will set your taste buds ablaze and a sweet and simple cannoli that will cool you off.
