Colts Encouraging Fans to Donate to Help Flood Victims
INDIANAPOLIS - The Colts' Fan Fests in recent weeks have been about making it personal, and about celebrating the team's 25 years in Indianapolis.
Now, they're about something else.
They're about helping the victims of the recent flooding in Indiana.
The Colts currently are hosting their first-ever "Fan Fests," a series of celebrations featuring free concerts by national recording artist Jon McLaughlin. With five Fan Fests remaining, the Colts are urging fans attending the events to make monetary donations to the American Red Cross, the proceeds from which will go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to help those affected by the recent flooding.
The Colts will match up to $10,000 at each Fan Fest location.
"Hoosiers have always stepped up when times get tough," Colts Owner and Chief Executive Officer Jim Irsay said.
Fans may stop by the Red Cross booth at each Colts Fan Fest to make donations.
All of the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to help those that were affected by the floods.
