Thanks ya'll for a real special time at the
2023 United Way Blue Jean Ball!

Yeehaw!!! We hope you enjoyed the 1st Annual United Way Blue Jean Ball as much as we did!

Big appreciation to everyone who joined in kicking off our fall fund drive and celebrating our merger announcement!

We couldn’t have asked for better weather or company. What a special evening!

A huge round of applause goes out to Cody Ikerd & the Sidewinders, Whippoorwill Hill, Great White Smoke BBQ, and Bruster's Real Ice Cream for delighting us with great music, delicious BBQ, and luscious ice cream at the big, beautiful barn!

Also a very special thanks to the many local businesses who contributed items to our silent auction. See the full listing below.

And big cheers to Title Sponsors: Old National Bank, and Hoosier Energy; Partnership Sponsor: IU Health; and Promotion Sponsor: First Financial Bank.

We’re so excited to keep this energy going as we all work together to help move families from poverty to possibility in south central Indiana! We hope we can count on your continued support.
