Portrait of Wishes Gala: Bourbon, Bling & Bowties
Event Chairs Phil and Judy Gumpert are very excited to invite you to join us for the annual Portrait of Wishes Gala: Bourbon, Bling and Bowties.
Please join us Saturday, September 23, 2023 at the Marriott North, Indianapolis for a fantastic evening of bourbon tasting, a scrumptious meal and silent auction to raise funds that help us grant wishes for Hoosier children with life-threatening illness. The average cost of a wish is $10,000. Your generosity allows us to put smiles on children’s faces and hope in the hearts of their parents, family and friends. Together, we create memories for a lifetime.
5:00 PM: VIP EARLY ACCESS TO BOURBON TRAIL
6:00 PM: COCKTAILS, BOURBON TRAIL & SILENT AUCTION
7:00 PM: DINNER SEATING BEGINS
Relax in our outdoor cigar bar sponsored by Blend Bar.
Live music by Jai Baker Trio.
Sparkle and shine in your favorite cocktail and bowtie attire.
THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO GET INVOLVED:
- Purchase tickets for $200 each and come out and enjoy the festivities. Taste the finest bourbon—and maybe a cigar out on the patio—and enjoy a night out.
- Plan to participate in our silent auction and discover a future weekend trip or take home a collection of bourbon to rival the distilleries along Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail.
- Donate an auction item. We are currently seeking bottles of hard-to-find bourbon, restaurant cards, and hotel stays, but we’ll entertain nearly everything for this year’s gala.
- Sponsor the event. There are many levels available to get your company name out and exclusively sponsor the wishes of one to two special Hoosier kids who need a lift–especially after this pandemic.
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS
