State Fair now accepting donations for Celebration of Champions

by Indiana State Fair on July 28, 2014
 

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana State Fair is now accepting donations for the Celebration of Champions that will take place Aug. 9 in the newly renovated Fairgrounds Coliseum. The ceremony, known as the Sale of Champions for many years prior to last year, recognizes youth at the State Fair through an elaborate gala and monetary awards that celebrate achievement, scholarship and hard work.

The event no longer relies on competitors returning home to raise funds. It uses a pre-set formula for awards to maintain an appropriately tiered structure and operational transparency.

“We’ve been looking at this event for several years now, and after many discussions and public meetings around the state, we firmly believe this is a model that will not only provide the kids with substantial, sustainable funds, but also make them feel incredibly proud of all the hard work they put in to deserve such recognition,” Indiana State Fair Board President Steve Simmerman said.

By removing the fundraising responsibilities from the participants, they can now more fully savor the success they’ve achieved. The State Fair Foundation is now coordinating all fundraising for this event and is ready to accept donations from individuals and private companies that would like to be a special part of this memorable occasion. Anyone wishing to donate can do so by emailing championshisf@yahoo.com. The Celebration of Champions is a public event that will begin at 1 p.m. Aug. 9.
