The Indiana Pacers graciously invited The Salvation Army to add to the ambience outside Conseco Fieldhouse on Tuesday, December 2, prior to the game against the LA Lakers (who, of course, lost the game.) The Brass Ensemble played various holiday selections as fans made their way through the crowds gathered for the game. Several Red Kettle sites were set up around the Fieldhouse to collect donations in support of the continuing work of The Salvation Army for those in need in central Indiana.
Exactly 3,000 game programs had a special insert to interest fans in the upcoming WIBC Radiothon, which benefits The Salvation Army. Quinn Buckner, Vice President of Communications for Pacers Sports and Entertainment, is the honorary chairman of the WIBC Radiothon this year, and the involvement of the Indiana Pacers has been phenomenal.
During next weekend’s ‘Marathon of Giving,’ listeners will have ‘3 days’ and ‘3 ways’ to make a difference for those in need. And, the chance to win Pacers tickets (two every hour, to be exact.) Last year, the WIBC Radiothon raised nearly $165,000; this year, the goal is $175,000. On Friday, the Radiothon will focus on The Salvation Army’s programs to serve homeless women and children. On Saturday, programs for at-risk kids will be highlighted, ending with our disaster relief efforts on Sunday. Donations are now being accepted online at WIBCRadiothon.org, or you can listen live on WIBC 93.1FM next weekend.
To find out more or partner with the WIBC Radiothon this December 12-14, please visit WIBCRadiothon.org or give Kristen a call at 224-1019. There’s still time to become an hourly or prize sponsor.
