Meet Your Local Not-For-Profits
Each CFAC event supports a different local not-for-profit in the Indianapolis area. All net proceeds from our quarterly events go directly towards helping an organization in need.
The October 28th, 2017 Concerts for a Cause event supported the Indianapolis Art Center's Youth Programs.
