Welcome to another edition of the Greenwood Weekender, where we bring you local and surrounding happenings and events to make sure you're in the know about what to do this weekend.

As always, we hope you've had a great week so far and hope to help with making your weekend a memorable one.

So, with that being said let's look at what's going on this weekend around Greenwood:


Highlighted event of the weekend:  Noah's Night of Compassion


This will be the 3rd annual Night of Compassion hosted by the Noah Kriese Foundation. Each year the foundation hosts a Halloween-themed fundraiser and selects a special-needs child in need of some financial assistance. All the proceeds then go to the family for whatever the child is needing at the time. This year the family is the Feinman's. Allie has an extremely rare genetic disorder, CDKL5. She is almost blind and is not able to walk or talk. She also struggles with seizures. 

As Allie has gotten older and grown this has made it difficult to carry her up and down the stairs. So, the Noah Kriese Foundation has set a goal to raise $50,000 to help the Feinman family with a remodel on their two-story house that would allow Allie to have a bedroom and full bathroom on the main level. 

The foundation was created in honor of Noah Kriese, a 12-year-old boy from Center Grove who tragically died in 2009 after falling into the Trummelbach Falls in Switzerland. Noah always had a special place in his heart for special-needs kids.  Susan Kriese, Noah's mother, said of him, “We formed this to keep his spirit alive and to do things that he would have been a part of if he were still here."
