“This year, we’re really relying on past participants, press coverage and social media shares of friends and family to spread the word about our online auction. This is our only fundraiser to raise awareness and donations for Fletcher Place Community Center. We would prefer to be hosting our annual fun-filled bowling event, as we have done for the past nine years, but due to Covid safety concerns, a virtual event was the right solution this year. The need to lift up our neighbors, young and old, in the near-downtown area is so great. We must continue to do all that we can to help,” said “Strikes for Stansfield” co-chairs Babette Miller and Becky Gillum. Last year, “Strikes for Stansfield” raised over $25,000 for FPCC.
Fletcher Place Community Center has been effectively and compassionately serving the needs of the near-eastside community since 1872. Stansfield Circle, one of Indiana’s oldest non-profit organizations, provides funding and hundreds of hours of volunteer aid to Fletcher Place in historic Fountain Square.
