First Lady Karen Pence to Host Third Annual Luncheon to Support the Indiana First Lady’s Charitable Foundation
Start Date: 3/7/2016Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/7/2016
Entry Description
Indianapolis – Tomorrow, First Lady Karen Pence will be joined by distinguished guests to celebrate the Indiana First Lady's Charitable Foundation's third annual fundraiser. At the luncheon, First Lady Karen Pence will present a check to the third major grant recipient, the Indiana Bicentennial Commission, to fund an interactive display entitled “Treasures of the Statehouse” to be located in the new Indiana State Library Statehouse Education and Welcome Center. 
The interactive display entitled “Treasures of the Statehouse” will be dedicated in October and will allow guests, including Indiana fourth grade students and their families, the opportunity to capture the history of our great state of Indiana in an even grander magnitude on their visit to the Statehouse. The Statehouse Education and Welcome center will be housed in the Indiana State Library, adjacent to the Statehouse.
The Indiana First Lady's Luncheon is modeled after the U.S. First Lady's Luncheon held every year in Washington, D.C. and includes similar features, including a surprise guest entertainer, linens and bags made specifically for the event, and bi-partisan support. 
Joining Mrs. Pence will be former Indiana First Ladies Judy O’Bannon, Susan Bayh and Maggie Kernan. Shelley Whitcomb, daughter of First Lady Patricia Whitcomb, is attending on behalf of her mother.
In August 2013, First Lady Karen Pence announced the formation of the Indiana First Lady's Charitable Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, whose mission is to support and recognize communities and organizations that promote the well-being of Hoosier children and their families. Awards from the luncheon proceeds will be given throughout the year.  The Foundation has awarded grants to 175 additional charities, art programs and organizations impacting all 92 counties.
