Swinging Croquet Mixer
Following the tournament, mixer guests learned to play croquet and enjoyed the high life on the south lawn of the president's home. Thanks to 3 Days in Paris for their delicious crepe station, popcorn from Just Pop In, Sun King beer and Barefoot wine for making this event such a success.
Money raised at this event supports the educational programming at the home of the only president from the State of Indiana.
Thank you to our event sponsors and partners for their support!
