Wednesday, April 26th, 6:30 pm; Indiana Roof Ballroom (Reception at 5:30 pm)

The Spirit of Service Awards Dinner provides an opportunity for business, community, education human and social service as well as health care institution leaders of central Indiana to join in celebrating those who have dedicated their lives in a spirit of service to others.  It also provides an opportunity to recognize the continuing impact Catholic Charities Indianapolis has among the poor and vulnerable in our midst.

Tamkia CathingsThis year's keynote speaker is former Indiana Fever Forward and 4-time Olympic Gold Medalist Tamika Catchings. Tamika's being named as the first receipient of the "ESPN Humanitarian Award in 2015 and an 11-year run of community service by her Catch the Stars Foundation are testament to her work off the court."  

This year's theme, "Shooting for Gold Medal Standard in Service" recognizes the goal that Catholic Charities Indianapolis has set to provide quality services within our community for people in need. As this is primarily a corporate event, the focus is on "Helping Businesses Help People."
