As the name suggests, the impact of the Ripple Effect is felt throughout the community. Proceeds from the event benefit the Broad Ripple Village Association, a nonprofit focused on enriching the community, attracting investment, amplifying public spaces, and improving quality of life. By participating, you will help fund important BRVA programs, including: public safety, beautification, and lighting, among many others.
