Yobel International and the big picture club

Posted By on Mon, Nov 3, 2014 at 5:33 PM

When I went to India earlier this year with Yobel International, I saw first-hand the impact that nonprofit has on impoverished communities. 

Regular exposure trips provide opportunities for anyone to get involved in a direct way, but of course they don't pay for themselves, and like all nonprofits, Yobel needs to fundraise to fulfill its mission. 

Hence this past weekend's Evening In Good Taste at the Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery, where Yobel co-owner Sarah Ray says roughly $11,000 was raised via a food and drink sampling, raffle and silent auction. 

No matter that you missed it, because you can still contribute to the cause via IndyGive! or directly at Yobel, through programs like their Big Picture Club, which equates monthly contributions to the cost of a night at the movies. 

Here's a brief look at the evening and some of the charitable faces.
