Scenes from Strawberry Festival 2014

Shortcake and ice cream and sunshine, oh my!

If you were seeing red today, you weren’t alone.

The annual Christ Church Cathedral Women’s Strawberry Festival is more than an excuse to take your lunch break an hour earlier. It’s an exercise in Hoosier hospitality. A heavy majority of the day’s proceeds, which average between $60,000 to 70,000 annually, is donated to a host of charitable organzations. In 2014, organizations receiving donations include the Salvation Army, Helping Homeless Veterans and Families (HVAF), and Wheeler Missions Ministries.
