Our July 10th event was held at Backstage Bar and Grill on Main Street and was so much fun! We auctioned off all these handsome men for charity. All proceeds went directly to the local Non Profits, Young & Established and the Tristate Food Bank. Emcee for the evening was Channel 44 Entertainment Insider, Gretchin Irons! A special thank you to all these wonderful men for participating in our fun and different event!

Hi! I’m Karen…I was born and raised in a small town in southern Indiana…Santa Claus! I lived in Indianapolis for 20 years as an Event Planner and traveled the nation planning corporate events and private parties. Five years ago, I moved back to beautiful southern Indiana to be closer to family and have an adorable 9 year old boy named Baron. I also own an Event Planning Business in the Tristate and am constantly looking at ways to market my business and network and fell in love with the concept of Housewives In The City!
