  • Survivorship Symposium

    The Indy SurviveOars were excited and honored to have Dr. Don McKenzie and other inspiring and informative speakers join us for our 10 Year Survivorship Symposium during Breast Cancer Awareness month; October 2017.




    The Indy SurviveOar 10 Year Anniversary Gala (Pink Paddle Party) was held on August 25, 2017 at the Indiana State Museum; a beautiful location on the Canal in downtown Indianapolis.  The evening began with a cocktaill party outside on the Canal patio.  Dinner, dancing, silent auction and gondola rides followed along with the initial airing of the 10 year Indy SurviveOar promotional video.  The event was sold out and all agreed that it was a beautiful setting, wonderful food, an entertaining evening and a successful fundraiser.
