Big News In Real Life: An Evening with Ashley C. Ford
hosted by INDY MAVEN x Pivot Marketing, sponsored by CICF
Time Out New York once called her “an inspiring flash of light on an internet that can often seem like an endless night.” She once helped to raise more than $100,000 to pay off student lunch debt across the country with a single tweet. She has written or guest-edited for more top-tier publications in the world than we could count.
Ashley C. Ford is a maven you must know.
Pivot Marketing and Indy Maven invite you to grab a cocktail, pull up a chair, and see Ford dish on stage at The Cabaret about her path to internet fame, her journey as a storyteller, and everything else that makes this native Hoosier tick.
5:30 p.m. Doors Open
6:30 p.m. Event Begins
9:00 p.m. Event Ends
Big News In Real Life is an Indy Maven signature event that takes a person, topic, issue, or idea and takes it from something buzz-worthy on the internet to an audience “in real life.”
This event is sponsored by Central Indiana Community Foundation and hosted with support from The Cabaret. A portion of event profits benefits Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis, a non-profit organization offering programs for girls to empower them to be confident, prepared, and proud.
