Meet & Greet

Below are some scenes from our May 10 "Meet & Greet." This was a delightful event that brought together new and long-time friends and supporters. My deepest thanks to all who participated. I am humbled and honored to have your support in this election!

With two wonderful campaign supporters!
Our dessert bar included these awesome cookies prepared by Arleen's Sweet Treats!

Our event brought together some of the many volunteers who helped build the Moraine Ridge Wildlife Rehab Center about 10 years ago.  It was "wild" reunion for us volunteers!

Love these campaign volunteers!

We received an Indiana Gaming Commission permit to allow us to hold a raffle at our event. I was proud to highlight locally owned and women-owned businesses in our raffle.                         
The most sought-after raffle prize was this blueberry cheesecake by Arleen's Sweet Treats.
With supporters, including Sylvia Graham of the Porter County Council.
Our dessert bar.

 Our eating utensils were biodegradable, made from recycled materials, and/or recyclable. Please recycle...for a better world.

Incredible volunteers!
