Playworks will rock (paper and scissors) in Indiana on November 1, 2017 at our inaugural Get in the Game Gala featuring games, cocktails, a silent auction, special guests, and more!
You’re invited to join the fun at the first annual Playworks Indiana Get in the Game on November 1, 2017 at the NCAA Hall of Champions, located at 700 W Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204.
Our incomparably fun and seriously impactful signature fundraiser is the perfect representation of Playworks. The evening combines fine food and drink, an irreverent awards ceremony, a silent auction, and plenty of fun and games. We’ll be foursquaring in cocktail attire, shooting hoops (so feel free to wear your sneakers), and honoring individuals who are working to make healthy, inclusive play a part of every child’s life.
Event time: 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM
