Havana Nights

Formerly Red Carpet Gala - now, ELEVATE! Inspired by Cuba's sounds, spirits and sensations, join us for an evening of awards, fun, philanthropy and community. With mojito in hand, let's toast our young professional leaders who tackle the social issues most important to today's generation and lead others to the causes in our community.

Why ELEVATE? Because we rise by lifting others. Together we can fight to lift more families out of poverty in Central Indiana. This year your generous support will provide nutritious meals to children who may not otherwise have access to healthy foods at home.

But wait, there’s more! Join us for the inaugural ELEVATE awards. Stay tuned for nominations opening in five exciting categories on November 28, 2018.
