Put on your best denim and pearls (or tie!) for a fun evening of dining and dancing while raising awareness and funds to fight hunger across North Central Indiana. Join Food Finders Food Bank for the fifth annual Blue Jean Ball presented by Valeo Financial Advisors in partnership with Purdue University College of Agriculture. 

Due to the support of our generous community, the 2016 Blue Jean Ball raised $45,000 towards critical operating funds for the food bank. The Blue Jean Ball is the first fundraiser to ensure Food Finders continues to address the essential needs of our food-insecure population. The food bank distributes more than seven million pounds of food annually to 83,000 Hoosiers through the combined efforts of 150 nonprofit Agency Partners and the food bank's direct service programs; BackPack, Mobile Pantry, Senior Grocery and Summer Food Service.
