CHAIRish the Children Fundraising Event for Foster Care and Adoption

CHAIRish the Children is a special event on November 8th, featuring an auction of elaborate designed chairs for adults and children. All proceeds directly benefit Prevent Child Abuse Indiana and The Villages, a foster and adoption agency in the Indianapolis area.

We’ve been immersed in the foster care system for nearly a year now, as our adoption has progressed. There’s a lot involved — social workers, case managers, CASA volunteers, therapists.

And in the center of it all, is the foster/adoption agency. They work hard to support families in foster care, find adoptive placements for children who need a permanent family, and provide services to kids in need.

The Villages is one of these agencies in the Indianapolis area. They work so hard to protect children, support families, and train foster parents. As a non-profit agency, the funds raised through CHAIRish the Children will help The Villages protect children and place them in safe, loving homes.

This year’s CHAIRish the Children event will be held at the stunning Lucas Estate. It features 33.6 acres of beautiful land in Carmel, Indiana and a 15,000 square foot sports pavilion, including a bar and fireplace, sweeping balconies, and a full basketball court that is a replica of of IU’s basketball arena floor. I cannot wait to check it out!

A collection of the chairs, along with children and chair-themed artwork, will also be available for bidding through an online auction from November 1st at 9:00am to November 7th at 9:00pm. CHAIRish the Children will be on Friday, November 8th from 6 to 9pm, when you can bid on special items in a live auction.
