LETTER: Lucases help not-for-profits

October 28, 2017

I’m the CEO of Cancer Support Community Central Indiana and we are fortunate to have the ability to host fundraisers and other events at the Lucas estate [Lucases plan to keep hosting parties, despite Carmel zoning decision, IBJ.com, Oct. 23].

The ability to host a high-end event that does not blow our budget means that organizations like ours can focus more on mission delivery (and less on more fundraising).

The thousands we serve are indebted to the Lucases, who have personally donated to our organization as well. I hope their neighbors and Carmel alike will work with them so that we are still able to host events there.


Eric Richards, president & CEO
