You Deserve Roses: Midwest Leak 100

You Deserve Roses: Midwest Leak 100

This year we are excited to introduce the Midwest Leak 100. The 100 is comprised of people and organizations that intentionally engage and inspire the community to make an impact in their own unique ways. The Honoree segment of the Midwest Leak Awards has been continuously evolving over the years. While the Indy’s Favorites section of the show is awarded through nominations and voting by our readers, this list is the Midwest Leak team’s selection for 2024. Our goal is to make a greater impact by increasing awareness of the work being done by and for our community. The 100 will be honored through a series of events including a private reception and our public Midwest Leak Awards show on July 7, 2024 at 7pm at The Vogue.

A Letter from the Editor:

Dear Midwest Leak 100,

Thank you for actively walking in your purpose and intentionally creating in ways that engage, inspire, and impact the trajectory of your community across generations.

Love Always,
