First Lady Pence hosted a reception at the Governor's Residence for 35 organization and charities that serve Hoosier families and children across the state.

First Lady Karen Pence started the Indiana First Lady's Charitable Foundation in August of 2013 as a way to recognize and lift up organizations and charities across the state.

At the inaugural First Lady's Luncheon held in April, the Foundation awarded its first major grant of $100,000 to the Art Therapy Program at Riley Hospital for Children.

This year's luncheon recipient will be Feeding Indiana's Hungry, which supports food banks and food pantries in all 92 counties. Throughout the year, the Foundation will award smaller grants to organizations across the state.
