BREAKFAST WITH SANTA

Each year, the Breakfast with Santa Committee selects a community partner–such as Julian Center, Craine House, Dress For Success, etc.–for a service project at this annual event. Each event attendee is invited to participate by donating their time, talent, and treasure to a worthy local charity.

BEAUTILLION MILITAIRE

The Beautillion Militaire was organized in 1986 by the Indianapolis Chapter to provide a personal development experience and recognition event for African-American males in their junior or senior year of high school. The event, sponsored jointly between the Indianapolis Chapters of Jack of America and The 100 Black Men of America, is a 16-week education and leadership development program open to young men who excel in the areas of leadership, academics, athletics, and service (school, church, community). Each participant has the opportunity to earn a scholarship or book award that can be used at a college or university of the recipient’s choice. Beautillion Militaire culminates with a rite of passage ceremony and scholarship gala that is open to the community.
