The Grande Masquerade

This stunning gala for an anticipated crowd of 700 guests, many in costumes inspired by the event’s theme, has long been one of Indianapolis' premier fundraisers. For the last 30 years, The Grande Masquerade has raised money to help clients of The Damien Center. This event brings together the community who have a passion for helping those individuals diagnosed with HIV.
