CENTER TOWNSHIP, Ind. -- Friends of Riley invite all Riley supporters to The Tinker House on Friday, Oct. 19.

Friends of Riley (F.O.R.) hosts monthly fundraising and networking events, providing volunteer opportunities for Indy's young professionals to give back and become even more connected with the Riley cause. 

Party F.O.R. a Purpose is an annual event for the organization and serves as their biggest push of the year to bring the community together. The goal this year is to raise $25,000 for Riley's Child Life Program. Last year, the Friends of Riley team met their fundraising goal of $15,000 for the Child Life Specialists at the local hospital.

"We are thrilled to be putting on Party FOR a Purpose again this year to raise money for the kids at Riley Hospital for Children," said Alex Neff, president of Friends of Riley. "Friends of Riley knows how critical Child Life is to patients who spend time in the hospital."

The event on Oct. 19 will include an open bar featuring Hotel Tango's spirits, appetizers from local restaurants, live performances from SM Wolf & The Doo, a bottle pull, and an extensive silent auction.  

Tickets can be purchased here.
