The Indiana Historical Society (IHS) will honor A’Lelia Bundles, Albert Chen, Joseph and Sarah Ellen Mamlin, and Cynthia Simon Skjodt at the 2021 Indiana Living Legends gala. This year’s class of Living Legends will be honored on Thursday, October 7, at the Scottish Rite Cathedral, 650 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis.
Each year, IHS recognizes extraordinary Hoosiers for their local, statewide and national accomplishments in a variety of areas and disciplines. The gala is IHS’s signature fundraising event and helps IHS fulfill its mission to collect and preserve Indiana’s unique stories by supporting its statewide programs and services.
In addition to the generous corporate sponsorship of OneAmerica Financial Partners, Inc. and Lake City Bank, and supported by Hirtle Callaghan & Co. and Freixenet Mionetto USA, IHS welcomes individuals and companies to support the IHS by attending the event.
Tables of 10 are available for Patrons ($3,500) or Event Benefactors ($5,000). Individual tickets are also available at the Patron ($350) and Event Benefactor ($500) level. Table and seating capacity may be reduced, and seating arrangements may be adjusted in order to comply with current CDC and local health guidelines. Patrons and Event Benefactors will receive recognition in the program. All but $75 of each individual ticket price (and all but $750 of a Guest or Patron level table cost) is a tax-deductible gift in support of IHS’s educational programs throughout Indiana.
The black-tie gala will begin with a cocktail reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. The program will begin at 7:45 p.m. It will be followed by coffee and desserts, during which time all attendees will have the opportunity to congratulate the honorees.
