“Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a God, you say yes!”
A Creative Entertaining Partnership
Dayspring Center is a family emergency shelter in Indianapolis that greatly depends on community resources and partnerships to keep our mission going – meeting the emergency and support needs of local homeless families and their children. Last year, with the help of partners, like Circle City Ghostbusters, we helped over 170 families including 525 children recover and rebuild from homelessness. We are so grateful for the creative ways the Circle City Ghostbusters have worked with our staff and volunteers to benefit the families we serve:
Pop Con and Days of the Dead convention raised $2,333 for Dayspring Center, the most raised by the Circle City Ghostbusters for a local nonprofit.
During the Days of the Dead convention, Ernie Hudson and the Circle City Ghostbusters set aside time to visit nearly 50 homeless children during Dayspring’s summer camp. In fact, the campers enjoyed a Ghostbuster-themed week prior to his visit. In addition to making slime, Ernie posed with each child and gave them an autographed Ghostbusters poster.
Ernie Hudson also donated $1,000 to the Dayspring mission which was matched by the Circle City Ghostbusters.
Circle City Ghostbusters create a Ghostbusters-themed putting hole at Dayspring Center’s key fundraiser, a wacky miniature golf tournament. The Ghostbusters were the highlight of the corporate tournament.
Circle City Ghostbusters hold a Ghostbuster Trivia Night, on Wednesday, June 26th. Portion of ticket sales were directed to Dayspring Center, Ghostbuster fans had a lot of fun and raised $230.
Every dollar raised means another meal, a night of safe shelter and critical resources for a homeless family. The efforts of the Circle City Ghostbusters gave 182 homeless children a fresh start to a better life, providing them 3 meals a day for one week and six nights of safety!
