Tara Board is a Commercial Broker with Breeden Commercial and is honored to have been asked to help out with such a great cause. Tara has two teenagers and a third who has decided to join her family. They have a great time hanging out together, which looks a lot like a reality show most of the time! They are all great kids and she truly enjoys this time with them!
Tara and her family decided to move to Columbus about 9 years ago from Indianapolis. They purchased some nice land so their daughter could enjoy her passion for horses and their kids could be kids. They are very pleased with their decision to move here and could not be happier in this community.
Tara began working with Breeden Commercial six years ago after owning several commercial properties and developing a love for commercial real estate. Breeden has been the best support system for her and a great platform from which to build her career as a commercial broker and to become involved in the community.
Tara is very involved in our community, she is on the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and participates as a Chamber Ambassador. She also attends most local charity events and donates to many non-profit community organizations.
Tara hopes you will dig deep into your pockets and donate as much as possible to this cause and keep our kids safe! She thanks you in
advance for your generous donations!

Donnie Ritzline works as the Accounting Manager for Johnson Witkemper/Marvin Johnson & Assoc. where he has been for four years. He was a recipient of the “20 Under 40” award in 2011 by the Columbus Young Professionals.
While he doesn't have any children of his own, Donnie believes Child Abuse Prevention is important because it helps make people aware there's a problem and because it affects all aspects of one’s life whether or not you are a parent. It could affect family members, friends, coworkers/colleagues; absolutely everyone! Prior to his current job, Donnie worked at HomeFederal Bank/Indiana Bank and Trust for 13+ years. He has sat on the Children, Inc Board for over 10 years. Donnie has also not only been on the planning committee for the local, fundraiser “Dancing with the Stars… Columbus Style,” which benefits Children, Inc and Family School Partners, but he has been a dance participant each year! Good or bad, you may recognize Donnie's name from that! His sister, Nikki Hall, and her family live here in town still as well as his parents, Gary and Debbie Ritzline. Thank you for helping Donnie raise money for this great cause!
Mindy was born and raised in Columbus where she grew up on a farm in White Creek and attended St. John’s Lutheran School until 8th grade. She graduated from Columbus North in 1993 and became a mom that same year to her oldest daughter Ashton. She then attended Ivy Tech where she graduated with a degree in accounting in 2003. In the meantime she stayed busy working her way up in accounting jobs and met the man who completed her little family - her husband, Jason Setser. Shortly after they married they started adding to their family and started their own business, Setser Fabricating. While the business grew, so did their family!
Life is never boring around their house with Lydia, 10, Jamesyn, 8 and Gunnar, 7. Along with working for Setser she also opened Minash Boutique in 2014 with her daughter Ashton. Both of these businesses keep her on her toes but she still tries to be involved with church and her fellow female local business leaders! She believes strong women raise strong kids and the CAP prom is a way to make sure every child in Bartholomew Co has a chance! She is so excited about raising funds with all the other candidates and believes this year is going to be great!!!
Michael is the assistant General Manager of Johnny Carino’s in Columbus. He has been with the company for 12 years. Michael graduated from Ball State with a History degree and recently from WGU with my Masters in Business. He has made his home here in Columbus for the last 11 years. Michael has two beautiful five year olds and a girlfriend at home. Being selected to raise awareness by being on Prom Court will allow his kids and future generations to understand the importance of speaking up against childhood abuse. Too many times kids are silent and it effects them for the rest of their lives.
