Keeping Families Close
A Message from our CEO

Halloween fun! Decorating with our friends at NextGear Capital earlier this month.
Happy Halloween!

We're all decked out (thanks to our friends at NextGear Capital!) and looking forward to lots of spooky (& not-so-spooky) fun in the coming days here at RMHCCIN.

In addition to our family festivities, we kick-off the final months of 2018 with our annual gala: Taste...the Wine Regions of Italy! We're looking forward to seeing many of you as we sip, sample and support RMHCCIN families at our biggest fundraiser of the year. Haven't registered yet? Tickets are still available until midnight tonight and tickets to  Taste After Dark  are available online through midnight on Thursday (tickets are sold separately and do not require a Taste ticket to attend)! 

Following Taste, be sure to save the date for our annual Home for the Holidays open house on Tuesday, November 27 (aka #GivingTuesday)! This fun, family-friendly event is free and open to the community. We'll have treats, cookies and lots of holiday fun for all -- we hear there may even be a visit from the big man in red himself!

Be sure to stay tuned to our website and social media handles for updates and additional information on all of our upcoming events. We hope to see you around soon.

Until next time,

The Adopt-a-Room program is a year-long sponsorship of a room or continuing care apartment at our Limestone and Riley Houses. The program provides families with much more than just a roof over their heads -- it helps to provide support, home-cooked meals and relief from their stressful situations. Most importantly, room partners are helping families focus on what matters most -- their seriously-ill or injured child.

This month we are welcoming our friends at The UPSĀ® Foundation as a new Adopt-a-Room partner and friend to our House! UPS first joined us to prepare  breakfast for our families last November. Since then, the UPS team has committed to our mission of providing a "home-away-from-home" to families by preparing casseroles, adopting a room and serving as the presenting sponsor to our upcoming Taste After Dark event!

" UPS is proud to support the communities we work and live in," says a representative of the company.

Thank you for helping us continue our mission, UPS!
Around the House

Cookies, cake, party hats -- oh my! A great time was had at our October birthday celebration. We loved celebrating all of our October birthdays -- thank you to all of our families who were able to join us!

Another great Indy Do Day in the books! For two days in a row, our House was full of service project volunteers baking, gardening, cleaning, organizing and helping to keep our House in tip-top shape. A big RMHCCIN show of appreciation to Eli Lilly, BMO Harris Bank, Indianapolis International Airport, IUPUI and to the Rotary Club of Indianapolis for coordinating this amazing day of service! 
Save the Date: Our Holiday Open House is Tuesday, November 27!

Join us for an evening of holiday fun including festive treats, visits with Santa, vote on your favorite RMHCCIN holiday trees, complimentary hors d'oeuvres and more!
