Scott County Riley Campaign Kickoff

The Indiana District of Kiwanis in partnership with the Riley Children’s Hospital Foundation is kicking off a new four year campaign to reduce the infant mortality rate in the State of Indiana.  

For over 100 year Indiana Kiwanians have partnered with Riley to benefit our kids.  Please see the attached invitation to attend a kickoff luncheon hosted by our corporate member Scott Memorial Health on 21 Feb.  Doug Gross of Willie D’s will be catering the lunch.  Amber Miller from Riley Children’s Hospital will give a presentation on the new campaign.  

The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club has set a goal to raise $5,000 over the next four years to support this campaign.   Our first major fundraiser for the new campaign will be the Spaghetti Dinner on 17 Mar at the Scottsburg United Methodist Church from 4:00-7:00.  Our corporate member Hickory Creek is sponsoring the spaghetti dinner.  Tickets will be distributed to members soon to help us make this dinner a success for Riley.  

Please see details of the luncheon attached and let me know if you will be able to attend.  We will have room for 50 attendees.
Thank you so very much for your support of Riley Children’s Hospital.
