All proceeds from the event will go to the Evansville Kindness Club.

The Kindness Club was launched in 1995 by elementary school teacher and Evansville native Barb Bratvold. Since then, 277 students have taken part in the club, sending out 45,546 cards and letters to people around the world including those affected by tragedies such as September 11, 2001, hurricanes and tsunamis, as well as to members of the military.

In 2000 the club was chosen as a National A+ Community Impact Award winner by the School Mate Company in Kearney, Nebraska.
