On Thursday, June 20th, VASEY attended the "Inside the Bottle for Outside the Box" Fundraiser, a Food and Wine Tasting Extravaganza at the beautiful Lucas Estate in Carmel, IN. VASEY had the privilege of being one of two ticket sponsors for this very special event. Guests of Outside the Box (OTB) enjoyed a tasting of fine wines and beers, an array of food from local, independent restaurants, and the opportunity to bid on silent and live auctions.

One of the joys in giving is that invariably you seem to benefit just as much as if not more than your recipient. This is especially true of our company-wide summer project for Outside the Box, an Indianapolis non-profit organization dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities. Our dear friends at OTB made these wonderful gifts for us. How tremendous to be remembered and receive these beautiful, unexpected gifts during this holiday season. To learn more, donate or volunteer at Outside the Box, please visit their website at www.otbonline.org.
At the end of June, we installed 20 air conditioning units at Outside the Box in Indianapolis, IN. Founded in 2008, Outside the Box (OTB) supports more than 250 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. OTB's goal for both employees and participants is the opportunity for individualized growth. Whether in the curriculum based Day Program, the creative arts experience of Studio OTB, or the customized Employment Services, they want all people to be the best they can be. Our team of VASEY volunteers spent their Saturday morning bringing much-needed comfort to everyone at the OTB facility.
