Colts Go Blue for United Way Day on Friday

Come to Monument Circle during lunch time Friday, Sept. 10th for free festivities, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

What do you get when you combine a Colts-style pep rally with a community volunteer fair and the kickoff of United Way’s annual campaign?

Organizers of the new Colts Go Blue for United Way Day hope the answer is record-breaking giving and volunteering to help those who need it most in Central Indiana. That’s the goal of the free public event scheduled for Friday, Sept. 10 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monument Circle in Indianapolis.

United Way of Central Indiana will announce its 2010 fundraising goal, recognize strong early campaigns at local companies and reveal special Colts prizes as incentives to spur giving.

Up to 100 local nonprofits will provide information about area needs and enlist volunteers to help improve the community. It’s part of United Way’s focus on engaging people to LIVE UNITED by making it easy for them to GIVE, ADVOCATE and VOLUNTEER.

Live music by Dave and Rae, $5 box lunches from O’Charley’s, free Indianapolis Colts schedule posters, the chance to see Colts Cheerleaders and the Vince Lombardi and AFC Championship trophies are on the schedule. A special performance by Broad Ripple High School students is also planned.

For more than 35 years, the NFL and United Way have been working together to strengthen communities. This rally celebrates the long partnership and invites the whole community to get involved to make it a winning season for both the Indianapolis Colts and United Way.
