Interactive Intelligence (News - Alert) Group Inc., a global provider of software and services designed to improve the customer experience, has announced that the company is conducting its fourth annual dinner-auction gala to raise funds for charities that supports at-risk youth.

During this occasion, Interactive Intelligence Group is giving an opportunity to American IndyCar driver and team owner, Ed Carpenter to join the fund raising event.

"The Interactive Intelligence Foundation supports some phenomenal charities with a big challenge -- to positively influence at-risk youth," Carpenter said. "These kids are the future and I look forward to speaking at this event to help support their belief in themselves and their enormous potential."

The fund raising event is happening on September 13th at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown. The guests to this event get to enjoy a cocktail reception, dinner, live entertainment by HT3. Guest can also indulge in listening to executive speakers talking on variety of topics and they can also be present to visualize children's artwork, and silent and live auctions.

Officials at Interactive Intelligence said that they will raise the fund to further donate it to Foundation-supported charities, which include African Refuge, Breakthrough Greater Boston, GENaustin, Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, Happy Hollow Children's Camp, The Julian Center, Penny Lane Centers, Quality Life Center of Southwest Florida, Saint Francis Community Services, and TRAC South Africa.

"The Foundation continues to grow, funding college scholarship programs, life-skills camps, food drives for local-area school children, and more," said Interactive Intelligence Foundation president Joe Adams (News - Alert). "The gala is a great opportunity to help us continue these efforts, while enjoying a fun night of entertainment and interaction with like-minded community members."

A fundamental part of the Interactive Intelligence corporate culture since its beginnings has been to give back to the community. Since 2011, the company in conjunction with international charity Oxfam, donates a goat to a needy family in an impoverished community in one of the many developing world countries where it operates.
