About the event
A night of merry making and fund raising. Bus stops will be updated shortly. Expect to ride around Dntn, Mass Ave, and Fountain Square. Ticket price is $60 for early registration and $75 the day of the tour. Cost of ticket is tax deductible.
Our bus tour is set to benefit the Direct Emergency Financial Assistance Fund (DEFA). Through a partnership with the late local entrepreneur, Phil Denton, The Health Foundation created the Gregory R. Powers Direct Emergency Financial Assistance (DEFA) program in the late 1990s to provide needed assistance to Hoosiers living with HIV/AIDS in emergency situations. DEFA funds are distributed by The Health Foundation to grantees that provide assistance, hands-on care management and assistance including The Damien Center, Eskenazi Health (formerly Wishard Hospital) and the LifeCare program at IU Health Methodist Hospital.
These agencies then administer DEFA funds to meet the individual emergency needs of HIV/AIDS infected persons. In 2021, DEFA funds provided assistance to 3,021 individuals.
