    Once again, the premier sponsor for this fun and worthwhile event was:

    Ed Martin Automotive Group

    In addition to the opportunity to taste a wide variety of quality wines from around the world, craft beers and craft liquors, the evening entertainment included delicious hors d'ouvres, a silent auction, a live auction with several one-of-a-kind trips and live music by Bongo Boy.  


  • Healing on the Water


    WISH-TV, a local Indianapolis TV station, recently featured Indy SurviveOars in a media spot. The reporter even joined the team during practice on a chilly, blustery October evening on Geist Reservoir, seated in the drummer's seat at the front of the boat. We thank WISH-TV for taking an interest in Indy SurviveOars and for helping us share our message with a larger audience. Please enjoy the article and video on their site:
