If you’re into having fun, dancing the night away and raising funds for a good cause, the Seann’s Shades of Blue Elite Extraordinaire might be just the ticket.

The annual, four-day event at The Embassy Suites Hotel & Conference Center in Plainfield features a variety of themed evenings, live music and dancing workshops.

Seann Launches a Non-Profit Blue Elite Extraordinaire

Twelve years ago, Seann Tischler launched a nonprofit organization to address needs she saw in the community.

She hosts social events throughout Hendricks County to raise funds supporting media programming offered to inner-city youth, addressing obesity in low-income areas and working with food pantries and grocery stores to provide nutritional donations.

The nonprofit offers credit to repair education and resources to launch a small business. Most recently, Blue Elite has worked to combat literacy needs in underserved communities.
