Catholic Radio Indy fundraiser dinner is set for Sept. 13

Catholic Radio Indy will host its annual fundraiser dinner at the North Side Knights of Columbus Hall, 2100 E. 71st St., in Indianapolis, at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 13.

The event will feature an update on what is going on at the local Catholic stations. Chairman Robert Teipen will be sharing the behind-the-scenes efforts the stations are engaged in as they attempt to purchase another station in addition to the two frequencies they already operate: 89.1 and 90.9 FM.

According to Teipen, “Opportunities to purchase a radio station in a major market like Indianapolis do not come along very often. When they do, they are very expensive, usually in the millions of dollars. We are working on plans to be ready, both corporately and financially, to take advantage of a future opportunity.”

The guest speaker for the event will be Father Vince Lampert, pastor of St. Malachy Parish in Brownsburg and the exorcist for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. He will discuss the differences in the exorcisms portrayed in the movies, and the very real and serious rite of exorcism.

The evening begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m., and dinner begins at 7 pm. The event includes a silent auction.

Tickets are $65, or a table for eight can be purchased for $450.

To register, call 317-870-8400, or log on to catholicradioindy.org/news-events/annual-dinner.
