Fundraiser Dinner Committee

Celebrating people making a world of difference in the Indianapolis community.

The focus of this dinner is to recognize individuals that are helping Indy become a global city.  These outstanding people are innovators in education, trailblazers in workforce development, and champions in community service. Therefore, the committee is responsible for finding such individuals and planning of this event.

Global Village Council Committee

What is the Global Village?

The Global Village will be a place in Indy’s International Marketplace that will represent each continent.  It will showcase the many ethnic cultures that reside here in Indy today through arts, education, and sports.  Our goal is that each continent will be represented and share its treasures within its own pavilion.

What is the task of this council? 

First, we help complete the vision of what a global village should encompass; whether it includes theater space, a demo kitchen, dance space, an international language and informational lab, or event space.  Second, we help with making sure that all prominent cultures are represented in this center by continent.  For example, someone representing the Hispanic community could represent those from Argentina to Venezuela. Lastly, there is always an issue of funding.  In order to successfully fund this project, it is important to reach out to our respective communities for contributions and gifts. I believe the uniqueness of this project is that it will allow people of different cultures to work together to create the Global Village of their own efforts.
