As Butler Bulldog fans entered the historic Hinkle Fieldhouse last night, they brought with them their now famous enthusiasm for the Dawgs and some new toys for families in need.
For the third year in a row, the Bulldogs supported the WISH-TV, Salvation Army Toy Drive by collecting toys prior to tip-off of the Butler Bulldog game at Hinkle Fieldhouse. Fans showed their support by donating more than 250 toys along with some cash donations which will be used to purchase toys. On hand to thank fans was Danielle, the Face of MyIndy-TV.
This is the second of three collection events this week. The last collection opportunity this week will take place Thursday at the Indianapolis Zoo during their annual Christmas at the Zoo event. Just bring a new, unwrapped gift to Christmas at the Zoo and you’ll be helping a family in need this season, plus you’ll receive 20% off admission and a free train ride!
Of course, from all these collections comes the need for transportation! We thank Two Men And A Truck for helping us move all those toys to our storage area in preparation for the Dec. 15th event!
