2012 has been a whirlwind year already for the Girls Inc. development and PR team. Already this year we’ve introduced three new fundraising initiatives and completed a successful month long matching gift campaign that brought in well over $16,000. All while continuing our public relations and social media efforts, preparing for our largest fundraiser of the year, and submitting grant proposals. I’m amazed every day by my team. Which is why when we have the opportunity to select the menu for our signature event, the Touchstone Awards, I make sure everyone on the team can attend.
It’s a hard decision choosing a menu that will please 500 people. The challenge becomes even harder when you consider we are serving lunch in the middle of a hot July with roughly 25 minutes set aside to eat. But, we are confident the catering team at the JW Marriott will come through on this fast-paced lunch service.
Last week, we sampled a selection of salads, entrees, and desserts to help us make this important decision. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to try my favorite – the chicken fingers and mac and cheese designated for our VIP guests – the girls from our summer camp. Everything we tried was delicious and sure to please our guests. I won’t reveal our final selections just yet, but I will tease you with photos!
If your mouth is watering already, head over to our event page to purchase your ticket! We hope to see you on July 12 as we honor four exceptional women! For more information about the Touchstone Awards, visit www.girlsincindy.org/touchstone.
