Fan Fest Schedule Extended to Include Martinsville Stop
INDIANAPOLIS - The Colts this month staged their first-ever Fan Fests, a series of events celebrating the team's 25 years in Indianapolis, and helping victims of the recent Indiana floods.
They're not over yet.
The Colts have extended the 2008 Fan Fest schedule to include a stop at Martinsville High School on Friday, July 11, at 5 p.m. The Colts, the United Way of Central Indiana and the Martinsville Chamber of Commerce will host the event, which will feature a free community concert, to benefit the flood victims of Morgan County.
The Colts will match up to $10,000 raised at the Martinsville Fan Fest.
"Hoosiers have always stepped up when times get tough," Colts Owner and Chief Executive Officer Jim Irsay said recently.
Raffle tickets for a Colts VIP experience, which includes four sideline tickets to a Colts home game, limo ride to and from the game and a steak dinner, are available at the Fan Fest as well as at the Martinsville Chamber/United Way office located at 109 East Morgan Street, Martinsville.
