11th Annual Tackling Homelessness is a Success!
On Monday, September 14th, Horizon House held its annual Tackling Homelessness event at the Colts Training Facility. Four hundred guests were in attendance. For the third year, Joe & Jill Reitz hosted the event. Jimmy ‘Mad Dog’ Matis emceed and The Hunter Smith Band performed. Featured speaker was former Board Member and neighbor, LuWanna Jennings who inspired everyone with her courageous story.
Colts players D’Joun Smith, Phillip Dorsett, Hugh Thornton, Jack Doyle, Ulrick John, Denzelle Good and Josh Robinson signed autographs and posed for photos. In addition, Colts Offensive Line including Anthony Castonzo, Jack Mewhort, Todd Herremans & Khaled Holmes participated in a Chalk Talk segment hosted by Joe.
Results are still coming in but so far Horizon House has grossed over $172,000 which is the most the event has generated over its eleven year run.
We could not conduct this event without assistance from volunteers, the Tackling Homelessness Committee, Tackling Homelessness Leadership Team – Loretta Smith, Sharon Reed & Sharon Wood, Board Members, employees and in kind donations.
