Our signature fundraiser is our Bowl M.o.R.E. Event. People throughout our community come together to sponsor or participate in this event. Those who participate take part in bowling, competing to win trophies for the highest donation and compete for raffle baskets and door prize drawings. This event usually happens toward the beginning of each year.
Another fundraiser is our Annual Mums Sale. We partner with Beckers Florist and Greenhouse in Cambridge City to sell a variety of beautiful, colorful mums. All the sales benefit M.o.R.E. for Kids. To purchase mums, reach out to a board member toward the end of summer.
As a smaller fundraiser we host a Pampered Chef Party. This is usually held at the Filling Station (219 N. Perkins St. Rushville, IN) during mid fall.
Our final fundraiser of the year is our M.o.R.E. for Kids Gala. This is an adults-only event where we celebrate our Mentors and Mentees while raising funds for the upcoming Christmas party and the following year. The evening entails a catered meal, cash bar, live music, short program, a silent auction, and the opportunity to sponsor a Mentee’s Christmas. Each year we choose a different theme, but please remember seats are limited. This event is usually held in the late fall.
