IndyBar: Evening Under the Stars Preparation is Underway

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

In just a few weeks, the Indianapolis Bar Foundation (IBF) will host its annual fundraiser, the Evening Under the Stars Dinner & Auction. The event features an elegant dinner, cocktails, live entertainment and silent and live auctions – all while attendees have the chance to mingle with Indy’s top legal professionals.

The organizing committee for Evening Under the Stars has been hard at work for the last six months to prepare for the night of October 10, and we checked in with committee co-chair Briana Clark of Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, who is chairing with Erin Durnell of Broyles Kight & Ricafort PC, to find out more about what attendees can expect for the evening.

Question: What’s different about Evening Under the Stars this year?

Clark: We are very excited to have two new elements to the event this year. The first is a pre-event VIP reception for our Platinum and Gold sponsors and our VIP donors who have been big supporters of Evening Under the Stars in the past.

The second is a Presenting Sponsor option for firms or companies that want to support the event but do not have a large number of individuals able to attend. This sponsorship is $1,750 and provides recognition on advertisements, recognition at the event as a Presenting Sponsor, recognition in the Indiana Lawyer and IndyBar e-Bulletin and two tickets to the event.

Question: What is the best part about this event? Why do people come back year after year?

Clark: In my opinion, the best part of the event is seeing how our tight-knit legal community comes together to support the IBF and how not only generous, but also creative, our lawyers can be. There are always really crazy baskets that are quite a crowd draw. Some firms like Rubin & Levin have intra-firm contests to see who can make the best baskets. It is great to see everyone have such a good time for a great cause.

Question: What are some of the exciting items people will be able to bid on?

Clark: We’re looking forward to seeing this year’s donations coming over the next few weeks. We anticipate some great sports-themed baskets with Colts/Pacers tickets and we always look forward to Rick Cavanaugh’s high-end whiskey basket. We also have some great kids’ items, like a racecar that can be driven around with a horn and lights that work! In the live auction, we have Chris Hickey’s always popular Big Girls Party, a Maui condo courtesy of Karl Mulvaney, a fun event at Flat 12 Bierwerks with James Hinchcliffe that involves driving simulators and lots of cool swag, and a number of other great items.

Question: How has preparation been going?

Clark: We have a great committee this year that has been on the ground running since February. We had a bit of an easier start this year because Crane Bay was such a fantastic venue for 2013 that we locked them in right away for 2014. We’ve been very busy securing firm sponsorships, soliciting basket donations and working on the new VIP reception.

Question: What should people expect out of their experience that evening?

Clark: A fun cocktail reception, fantastic auction items (a one-stop place to get your holiday shopping done and book next year’s vacation!), a delicious dinner and a fantastic opportunity to mingle with your co-workers, friends and judges from the Indy legal community.

Question: Why should people want to support IBF?

Clark: The IBF is the charitable arm of the IndyBar. Its programs provide those experiencing financial difficulty in our community with free legal assistance to keep families together, save homes, protect against violence, safeguard their property and so much more. Proceeds from the silent and live auction are directed to our general fund, and we’re happy to report that our annual operating expenses are less than 25 percent of our income. In fact, we granted nearly $150,000 in monetary support for programs in need in 2013 and nearly 3,000 hours of volunteer time.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to give back and get to know other legal professionals in Indianapolis. Evening Under the Stars will be held Friday, October 10 at Crane Bay Event Center. Tickets can be purchased online at indybar.org/events. For more information and details for sponsorship opportunities, contact Chris Walsh at cwalsh@indybar.org.•

  1. All of these comments you see on the internet about Dr matamah are not just comments, they are truthful words of experience written by those who have been there and found help in reuniting with the ones they hold dear to their heart and other marital and financial problems just like i did. am Svein Erik Bjerke from Gardermoen, Norway I can tell you this because I also asked him for help to cast a spell to fix my relationship with the only woman I have ever loved after been married four time in the last four years cos i didn't believe in love but in the power of being rich. When it came to meet my wife it was a different case because I fell for her in every way. At the time i met her it was only a while before the relationship became serious cos I bet she love me also. We moved in together and our relationship blossomed. we got married but couldn't have a baby and then I discovered my wife was barren. I had to try some spell casters but to no avail until I contacted Dr matamah. HE restored my wife's womb and just like that she got pregnant, she has given birth now and our baby is growing very healthy. I later casted a money spell through him which he did and today we are rich and doing very fine. Thank God for our lives and also to Dr matamah who God has used to blessed us. I know that not everybody will believe this moreover its just something on the internet but my heart knows every of this word that formed this entire comment is true. Am Leaving Dr matamah's contact for those who believe this and need help as well. his contact is: guruvoodoospellcast@yahoo.com

  2. Or does the study merely wish they fade away? “It just hasn’t risen substantially in decades,” Joan Williams, director of the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California Hastings College of the Law told Law360. “What we should be looking for is progress, and that’s not what we’re seeing.” PROGRESS = less white males in leadership. Thus the heading and honest questions here ....

  3. One need not wonder why we are importing sex slaves into North America. Perhaps these hapless victims of human trafficking were being imported for a book of play with the Royal Order of Jesters? https://medium.com/@HeapingHelping/who-are-the-royal-order-of-jesters-55ffe6f6acea Indianapolis hosts these major pervs in a big way .... https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Royal-Order-of-Jesters-National-Office/163360597025389 I wonder what affect they exert on Hoosier politics? And its judiciary? A very interesting program on their history and preferences here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtgBdUtw26c

  4. Joseph Buser, Montgomery County Chief Prosecutor, has been involved in both representing the State of Indiana as Prosecutor while filing as Representing Attorney on behalf of himself and the State of Indiana in Civil Proceedings for seized cash and merchandise using a Verified Complaint For Forfeiture of Motor Vehicle, Us Currency And Reimbursement Of Costs, as is evident in Montgomery County Circuit Court Case Number 54C01-1401-MI-000018, CCS below, seen before Judge Harry Siamas, and filed on 01/13/2014. Sheriff Mark Castille is also named. All three defendants named by summons have prior convictions under Mr. Buser, which as the Indiana Supreme Court, in the opinion of The Matter of Mark R. McKinney, No. 18S00-0905-DI-220, stated that McKinney created a conflict of interest by simultaneously prosecuting drug offender cases while pocketing assets seized from defendants in those cases. All moneys that come from forfeitures MUST go to the COMMON SCHOOL FUND.

  5. I was incarcerated at that time for driving while suspended I have no felonies...i was placed on P block I remember several girls and myself asking about voting that day..and wasn't given a answer or means of voting..we were told after the election who won that was it.
