The Colts and the Department of Child Services will host a book collection, benefiting the Books for Youth program, at each 2008 Blue Friday (or Thursday). Be sure to bring a new or gently used children's book to drop off when you arrive for the Blue Friday (or Thursday) festivities! All books will be donated to Indiana foster youth. Individuals can also drop off new or gently used books for children of all ages at select Indianapolis Marion County Library branches. For a listing of branch locations or to find out how you can host a book drive, please visit www.in.gov/dcs.
The Colts would like to encourage all fans to arrive at Meijer Blue Friday's early and find a spot in line to win a pair of tickets. Fans should see a Meijer representative for location of "game" line. There will be only one official line for tickets at each Meijer Blue Friday. The line to participate in the "game" for the free ticket opportunity will be administered on a first come first serve basis. Fans in line will be allowed one attempt at the ticket "game"; however, non-winning fans may get back in line for additional attempts. If someone wins tickets they will not be permitted to win an additional pair. Family members attending the Blue Friday together may win up to one pair of tickets per person. Once all 25 pairs of tickets are given away, the line will be cut off. All Blue Friday's will take place rain or shine. All Colts Blue Friday times are local.
