INDIANAPOLIS – 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?

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.
