Blue Breakfast Event Featuring Gary Brackett Celebrates 20 Years of Coburn Place Safe Haven
Empowering domestic violence survivors since 1996, Coburn Place has been a leader in providing transitional housing and support services to those who are homeless due to domestic violence. The inspirational morning will feature former Indianapolis Colts linebacker Gary Brackett sharing his journey on and off the field, as well as guests will hear first-hand from a survivor who is a past Coburn Place resident as she shares what the program has done for her during the ninth annual Blue Breakfast. The fundraiser, which draws as many as 350 business participants at the Colts practice facility, supports much needed transitional housing services and programming that Coburn Place provides in Central Indiana. Since opening in 1996, Coburn Place has been home to more than 1700 adults and children. The non-profit organization provides supportive services, resources and advocacy, as well as safe, long-term housing to those affected by domestic violence. To meet an ever-growing need for services, Coburn Place is expanding its reach by offering at least five new transitional housing units out in the community bringing its total units to 40. Blue Breakfast raises funds to help empower domestic violence victims to become self-sufficient and find permanent housing and will be held at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center, 7001 W. 56th St., Indianapolis, on Tuesday, March 22, from 7 to 9 a.m. and is open to the public. Tickets for the event can be purchased online at http://coburnplace.org/my-sponsorship/ or by calling 317-923-5750. Individual tickets cost $65 or $750 for a table of eight.
