$500 Silver Level Sponsorship includes a table of 10 seats
$50 Individual Tickets
You can make a difference on #GivingTuesday and for some of our most vulnerable community members. Proceeds from the Breakfast go to Horizon House as we prepare for colder winter months in serving homeless individuals in our city. We would be honored to have you join us!
Delicious dessert cookies were provided for event guests by Blondie’s Cookies, an Indiana company that has been in business for over 30 years, offering cookies, brownies, gourmet cakes, party trays and gift packages.
Heads or Tails
For $20, guests could purchase a spot in the Heads or Tails game. Surviving multiple flips of the coin was the objective and a $500 Amazon gift card, generously donated by RCR Technology Company, was the prize. Congrats to Boyd Zoccola for being the winning survivor!

Nearly 400 people attended the 13th Annual Tackling Homelessness event on Monday, September 25, 2017 in support of Horizon House. The annual event was started in 2005 by six-season defensive tackle Josh Williams and his wife Marcella.
This year’s event, presented by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield at the Colts training facility on W. 56th Street, was not only an opportunity to raise significant funds to support the Horizon House mission, but an opportunity to raise awareness of the issue of homelessness – celebrating the success of people who have overcome their homeless situation and showing support for those who are most in need in the Indianapolis community.
The event was a casual and fun evening emceed by fan favorite, Jimmy “Maddog” Matis. Attendees were able to participate in a variety of activities – Silent and Live auctions, a wine pull, and a game of Heads or Tails, for example – all with the purpose of providing a fun evening and raising funds to support the important work Horizon House does to serve homeless neighbors in the Indianapolis area.
A highlight of the event was “A Conversation,” a segment of the evening where attendees were able to hear about the impact of Horizon House in the community from those directly involved, a neighbor, a staff member and a board member.
“The shared personal story from James, one of our neighbors, about his experience at Horizon House helped bring awareness to how valuable our services are to those who need them most,” explained Teresa Wessel, Executive Director at Horizon House. “In hearing his story, along with additional insight from one of our staff members, Robert Worden, guests in the audience were able to better understand how Horizon House services truly inspires hope within our neighbors.”
Horizon House serves as Central Indiana’s champion and trusted leader for supporting homeless neighbors to achieve long term self-sufficiency.
