The Lucas Estate
Honoring Wheeler Mission as the 2019 Open Hearts Award and Grant Recipient
Actress and philanthropist Jane Seymour will host her Open Hearts Foundation Gala benefitting Wheeler Mission on Saturday, April 13th at the Lucas Estate. Founded in 2019, the Open Hearts Foundation is a social impact accelerator that is committed to empowering emerging and growing nonprofit organizations with a focus on women and children’s issues. This is the first Gala Jane has hosted outside of Beverly Hills, and she is thrilled to expand her Foundation’s reach to the Midwest.
Allison Melangton and Katie Lucas are co-chairing the gala that will feature moving and inspirational messages, a live auction, fund-a-need and a live musical performance by Ashley Campbell, daughter of the iconic Glen Campbell, a 2012 Open Hearts Award recipient.
Homelessness among women and children in Indianapolis is growing, and our Center for Women & Children runs above or at capacity every night. To provide safety for everyone who needs it–unprecedented numbers of women and children–we regularly put cots on our gym floor… but that’s no solution. It’s time to make room NOW!
We’re “Building for Change,” and raising $12 million to expand our facility. Our Center for Women & Children’s expansion more than doubles our program capacity and shelter beds, enabling us to serve hundreds more women and children each day.
“If your heart is open, love will always find its way in.”
– Jane Seymour, Open Hearts Foundation
