Proceeds to Benefit Indiana National Guard Relief Fund
INDIANAPOLIS (July 4, 2016) — On Independence Day at Victory Field, Indianapolis Indians players and coaches will honor, recognize and remember this special American holiday by wearing special Stars & Stripes jerseys as part of a memorable evening that will benefit the Indiana National Guard Relief Fund. The fund will receive the proceeds from an in-game, live online auction of the game-worn jerseys.
The auction is powered by Qtego and it isn’t required one be at Victory Field to bid. All that’s needed is a mobile phone. Qtego notifies participants via text message throughout the online auction so opportunities to bid, re-bid and outbid others aren’t missed. Below is registration information and bids will be accepted tonight through the 7th inning.
If you are at the game and need assistance, visit the bright orange Qtego display in center field’s PNC Plaza before the game and at the Standings & Lineup Board behind Section 109 after the game begins or simply register for the online auction by following the instructions below.
If not at the game remember that Indians home games are televised on Home Town Sports & News (HTSN), and all games are broadcast on FOX Sports 1260-AM, the iheartradio mobile app, and at IndyIndians.com.
Started in 2003 in conjunction with the Adjutant General of Indiana, the Indiana National Guard Relief Fund is a private, non-profit, tax exempt corporation. It has provided financial grants to Indiana soldiers and their families that have encountered difficult situations due to soldiers being mobilized or in times of financial hardship.
July 4 is the most recent of several special jersey auction nights at Victory Field. Last year $32,000 was raised from these auctions for Central Indiana non-profits.
