Mayor to be Honorary Chair of the Inaugural Carmel Gala –
Design Bright Futures to benefit Carmel Youth Assistance Program
– The Inaugural Carmel Gala - Design Bright Futures, a fund-raising event to benefit the Carmel Youth Assistance Program (CYAP), has been set for Saturday, May 6, at the Ritz Charles. Mayor Jim Brainard will serve as the Honorary Chair of the event and CBS4 Indy News Anchor Debby Knox will serve as emcee.
A silent auction, elegant dinner, live entertainment and a VIP reception hosted by Mayor Brainard are just a few of the things awaiting those who purchase tickets for the event. All funds raised will directly support the CYAP.
“We have done a lot in Carmel to help the next generation thrive in education, the arts, health and well-being. We’re also building a city with a high quality of life, one that our children will want to return to when they are ready to work or raise a family,” said Mayor Brainard. “However, we can do more. We must also reach out to children who are at risk of falling through the cracks of society. This is why we started the Carmel Youth Assistance Program.”
Affiliated with the Hamilton County Youth Assistance Program, this effort strives to build a healthy community for tomorrow by investing in the youth of today. Its goal is to reach at-risk children through family assistance, tutoring and mentoring programs, providing services to family and youth to enrich their lives.
Corporate sponsorships at a variety of levels are available for individuals and companies wishing to support the youth of Carmel.
