Colts, United Way host kickoff party


Hendricks County Flyer

---- — Fall signals the start of both the football and philanthropic seasons. Why not a kickoff event to celebrate both?

The Indianapolis Colts and United Way of Central Indiana invite Central Indiana fans to a combined kickoff party from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 5 on Monument Circle in Indianapolis. This is the fourth year for the combined kickoffs, which usually attracts up to 2,000 people during lunch hour.

The free event will feature live music by Dave and Rae, opportunities to find out about volunteering at United Way and its agencies, free Limited Edition Colts Kickoff posters, autographs from Colts alumni, a visit from Colts Cheerleaders and Blue, and Colts interactive inflatables.

At the BIG KICKOFF, United Way will announce its 2013 fundraising goal, celebrate results of early giving at area companies and recognize companies that recruit the most ReadUP volunteers.

Over the lunch hour, fans can meet Colts Cheerleaders, see the Vince Lombardi Trophy, and buy $5 box lunches from Applebee’s, with proceeds benefitting United Way’s campaign.
