On Sunday evening, August 26, members of Jesus MCCâ€™s Homeless Ministry and their guests attended Horizon Houseâ€™s annual fundraiser, â€œTackling Homelessness,â€ sponsored in part by Colts player Hunter Smith. The event was held at the Coltâ€™s training facility, and featured a performance by the Christian rock group, Connersvine, Hunter Smithâ€™s band. Several other Colts players, including Jeff Saturday and Dallas Clark were on hand to take pictures with people and to sign autographs.
But one of the highlights of the evening came when Joe Slaughter of Herff Jones got up to speak and present the Community Partner Award, which was given to Jesus MCCâ€™s Homeless Ministry. (Herff Jones received the award in 2006.)
