**Award Program Recognizes Volunteers and Philanthropists


INDIANAPOLIS – During halftime of their first pre-season game on Sunday, August 15, the Indianapolis Colts will recognize twenty-four outstanding volunteers and philanthropists by presenting them with the Golden Horseshoe Award. These individuals represent twelve charitable organizations in the Central Indiana community who are working to make a difference in the lives of Hoosiers.

This is the first year for the Golden Horseshoe Award, which was created by the Colts to raise awareness for local charities and their volunteers and philanthropists who are making a significant impact in our community. As a part of the Golden Horseshow Award program, each of the twelve non-profit organizations will receive twenty-five tickets to the game as well as twenty-five tickets to a pre-game hospitality reception, compliments of the Colts. Their top volunteers and top donors will then be recognized and presented with their awards during a special halftime ceremony.

"Every year, there are hundreds of charitable organizations and unsung heroes in our community who work behind the scenes to help Hoosiers in times of need," said Tom Zupancic, Indianapolis Colts Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The Golden Horseshoe Award was created to shine a light on some of those non-profits and individuals, and showcase the work they're doing to create positive change in Central Indiana and beyond."
