EVENT RECAP: Wrestling to Celebrate Foster Families

Wow! What a night of family fun. We need to give a huge THANK YOU to Chris Doyle and all the wrestlers of Indianapolis Championship Wrestling for coming out and putting on an amazing SOLD OUT show for the foster families!

Yes, you read that correctly. The show was SOLD OUT! We had almost 100 foster family members in the house, and over 138 general admission attendees. You can check out the experience through all of the videos and photos at the bottom of this page.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors who made this possible! The foster families had an incredible time, and we are so grateful for your support.

Thank you all for making Indy awesome!

Special thanks to:

  • Tag Griffin – Hearts in Hand Homeless Outreach for leading the charge and making this happen! You are a rockstar!
  • UFC legend Chris “Lights Out” Lytle for coming out to talk about anti-bullying and spending time with the kids and fans.
  • Nathan Miller (Irish Giant) for being a soldier with a big heart. Our thoughts and prayers are all still with you brother. 
  • Steven Ross for the ring girls! 
  • Jeff Gamble for jumping in as ring announcer and making the event even more amazing! 
  • Thank you Amplify Hope members Renita Hills, Vanessa Stringer, and Dawn Evans-Casey for working the door.
  • Robert Jones for videotaping the event!
