Commentary by Amy Pauszek
Kelly Hartman, co-Founder of Outside the Box invited Where’s Amy to attend the ‘Inside the Bottle’ fundraiser at the Lucas Estate in Carmel on June 16. Guests enjoyed strolling the estate grounds while sampling a wide selection of wine and beer tastings that complemented an array of food from some of Indy’s best independent restaurants. Along with the tastings, guests enjoyed an evening of dancing, a live and silent auction and an incredible program explaining how the Outside the Box nonprofit organization helps families in Indiana.
All of the proceeds from the event went directly to Outside the Box, which has a mission to empower adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. As I was chatting with so many remarkable family and friends who have benefitted from and supported Outside the Box, it hit me just how important this organization is and how it is making a difference to so many individuals. Thinking “outside the box” goes beyond the limitations of a name; it is the culture that empowers people. Check out this amazing organization and how it is paving the way for individuals to be strong and independent. For more, visit otbonline.org.
