posted: Dec. 15, 2017
On December 6th, Noble of Indiana and the Broad Ripple Sertoma Club held their 59th annual Holiday/Christmas party at the Northside K. of C. Hall. Since 1958, Sertoma has provided more than 1,100 children with this festive holiday experience. Christmas gifts purchased by Sertoma members and Noble of Indiana staff were distributed by "Santa" and Mrs. Claus, at a luncheon hosted by the two organizations.
Each year the therapists at Noble select 20 of their clients who have qualified for help as part of the First Steps program of Indiana which includes children ranging in age from one to five.
The Noble staff provided transportation for each child and family members, and Sertoma members and spouses helped provide a true holiday atmosphere, by purchasing Christmas gifts specific to each child.
President and CEO of Noble of Indiana, Julia Huffman, was presented with a check for $4,015 from the Broad Ripple Sertoma Club. Noble is one of the primary fund raising recipients of Sertoma.
