The Noblesville Youth Support Program wanted to make a bigger impact with their fundraising event.
So, City of Noblesville lawyer Lindsey Bennett, a NYAP board member, said the Haybale Ball was developed to replace Yee-Haw for Youth. The Haybale Ball will be held from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on November 12 at Lindley Farmstead in Chatham Hills in Westfield. Jai Baker 3 will serve as musical entertainment, from 8 p.m.
“Yee-Haw was first at Stony Creek Farms in 2018, then at Conner Prairie in 2019,” Bennett said. “We wanted to make it a bigger event to raise more money for NYAP, so we moved it to Mustard Seed (Gardens) last year. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we canceled this event, although Jai Baker also planned this last year. We decided to rename the event and make it more in line with major fundraisers from other local nonprofits. “
So, Bennett said NYAP chose a new name and location with increased capacity and included a silent auction and a wine and bourbon sale. Bennett said the organization had asked Mayor Chris Jensen for his support as honorary chairman of the Gaylor Electric sponsored event.
“The Noblesville Youth Support Program is helping to positively impact the lives of youth and families in our city,” said Jensen. “We know that supporting our families now will pay dividends in the future. Despite all of our current actions, there is more we can do to reach our children who are at risk of falling through society’s cracks, this is where the Noblesville Youth Assistance Program comes in and excels through programs for children. help to families, tutoring and mentoring.
NYAP was formed in 2012 to help strengthen youth and families through community participation. He provides professional coordination of services and referral services to students and families in Noblesville schools.
Lindley Farmstead can accommodate up to 250 people.
“The venue is a big, beautiful barn and fits the country theme of our event,” Bennett said.
The event will be casual country attire in a rustic setting. The event will start with a cocktail and appetizers downstairs, then move upstairs at around 7.45pm. NYAP Board Chair Tanya Wilhite will address the audience, followed by Jensen. There will be a dinner and an open bar.
The fundraising goal is $ 50,000. Bennett said that although 2020 has been a difficult year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NYAP has persevered with community support and has been able to provide assistance in the following ways: Raising 30 $ 000 through the Meals for Millers campaign which helped provide 13,080 meals to 327 Noblesville Students during the summer; provided 16,240 meals to 406 students in Noblesville during the combined spring and fall break; and helped with Holiday Assistance for 53 Noblesville children, and 250 STEM kits were sent home with the students when ordered to stay home.
