June 2016

Hello,

What a month it's been for our House! 


We celebrated families and children at the 10th Annual Heroes for the House 5K, we recognized our dedicated House dads at a wonderful Father's Day luncheon inside our House at Riley Hospital and we marched in a parade alongside Ronald McDonald during the Greenwood Freedom Festival!

And though our 30th Annual Golf "Swing for Kids" Golf Tournament on June 23 was rained out, it was still a bright day for the families we serve, thanks to the amazing support of our golf tournament partners and participants. Currently, we are doing everything we can to let our partners and golfers know how much we appreciate them.  Next month, we will be recognizing our golf partners in a thank you ad in the Indianapolis Business Journal on July 11. Partners will also receive an invitation to a special reception in September. All of our golfers will receive their very own "Golf in a Box," complete with a golf shirt, swag bag, snacks and a voucher to enjoy a very informal golf outing on August 8 at Broadmoor Country Club.

Though last Thursday's tournament is a prime example that things will not always go as planned, the one thing we can always count on is the unwavering support from our community. Be it through serving dinner, wish list drives or simply attending one of our events - we are forever grateful to all who help us keep families close throughout the year.

Take care,

 
Michelle Study-Campbell, CEO

Provide a Meal that Heals

After a long day at the hospital, there's nothing more appreciated than a home-cooked meal. Get together with friends, family or co-workers to plan a menu and prepare a comforting meal for our families. We provide the kitchen, you provide the food! Not only will you be helping our families but you will also have a great team building experience with your group of friends, family and business associates.

We are in need of meal groups for both our main House located on the IUPUI campus and our smaller House located inside Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health. Whether a one-time event, or a monthly date, we invite you to come to the House and share your culinary skills with our families.

Currently, there are a few openings in July that need filled.

For more information on how to sign-up to provide a meal that heals, please click here.
