Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) at IMA

Kahn’s Catering takes our role as a caterer with great responsibility. We cater to events large and small from celebrations to corporate affairs to events for a variety of organizations. Being asked to become a trusted vendor for any philanthropic organization’s event is always a pleasure we take great pride in.

The Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) helps children and young adults who need a life-saving transplant by providing fundraising assistance and family support. This year COTA selected the Indianapolis Museum of Art as the venue for their Second Annual Miracle Maker Celebration by welcoming guests to an evening cocktail reception, silent auction, and dinner program in Randolph H. Deer Special Events Pavilion Pavilion.




Cocktail hour was held in Pulliam Great Hall against the backdrop of Sol Lewitt’s Wall Drawing No. 652 creating a beautifully lit and unique centerpiece for the event. Silent auction items were available for guests to browse through as they enjoyed butler passed hors d’oeuvres and drinks.



Attendees of the COTA event transitioned to Randolph H. Deer Special Events Pavilion Pavillion for dinner and program. Tables showcased the organization’s colors of blue and yellow and various parts of their mission through their table number, a unique and creative way to theme their event.
