Great Steak and an Even Better Story!

Partnering with Ruth's Chris Steakhouse

On September 15th and then again on September 29th we have invited nearly 60 business and civic leaders to hear the story of the Monroe Circle Community Center over a great meal at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. As I shared in a previous post, the management team of Ruth's Chris meet with us late last year and wanted to find ways to have greater impact in the community and wanted to underwrite the entire costs of inviting 120 people for a dinner meeting at their fine restaurant.

Our initial question was, "who in their right mind would want to turn down a dinner for two at on of Michiana's finest restaurant?" Plus, we have a great story to share.

So, we hand delivered each invitation in a Ruth's Chris "doggie bag" along with a video message from Mark Beeson inviting them and their spouse to this special event.

Simply, we are going to share the story of the Monroe Circle Community Center and our belief that together we can change the culture of a community. And, we are going to ask how they might want to get involved.
