Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, located at 10 West Washington Street in Indianapolis, IN, will host the 'Miracle on Washington Street' on Christmas Day (12/25/05) from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This event will feed and clothe over 800 of Indianapolis' homeless and displaced from area shelters.

'Miracle on Washington Street' will brighten the holidays for those in need by providing luxury bus rides to the Rock Bottom Brewery. Upon arrival, guests will be treated to a warm holiday meal of turkey, ham and all the trimmings. All children will be provided with much needed winter coats, shoes, toys, candy and an opportunity to visit with Santa and have their picture taken.

"Here at the Miracle, Christmas takes on a whole new meaning," stated Chad Ashley, General Manager, Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. "We bring the community together for a day filled with attentive service, overwhelming abundance and dignity. Gone is the casual décor typical to most breweries. Instead, our guests dine on white linen table cloths, china and real silverware. We want our guests, especially the children, to truly enjoy the holiday."

This day is made possible by the generosity of countless community sponsors and partners including Simon Properties, Union Federal Bank, Piazza Produce, Marsh Supermarkets, American Linen, Sara Lee, Tyson and Reinhardt Foods and The Rock Bottom Foundation.

However, we cannot do this alone. Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery and the Rock Bottom foundation are still looking volunteers interested in working with us on Christmas Eve (12/24/05) and Christmas Day (12/25/05) to make the Miracle happen. Anyone interested in volunteering for the event can visit the Rock Bottom Foundation Web site (http://www.rockbottomfoundation.org) and select the ‘Miracle Events’ tab, then ‘Indianapolis, IN;’ information on volunteering can be found on the page for the ‘Miracle on Washington Street.’ Anyone needing more information can also contact Matthew Kennedy, Manager, or Chad Ashley, General Manager, at Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery at 317-681-8180.

From a single event in Denver in 1996, the Miracle Events have grown in response to the tremendous need across the country. In 2005, over 12,000 disadvantaged people in twelve cities will receive an outpouring of community generosity through the Rock Bottom Foundation Miracle Events. These miraculous Events directly address the needs of homeless and hungry men, women and children in our communities by providing them with a delicious meal, shoes, jackets, diapers, toiletries, baby food and toys during the holidays.
