The local chapter of the NFL Alumni is building a reputation for becoming one of the league’s most active chapters for charity.

Tonight the Indianapolis chapter is inviting the public to the annual Caring for Kids Celebrity Music & Sports Fundraiser.

The event will be held at the Hard Rock Café in downtown Indianapolis with doors opening to the public at 7 p.m. Highlights of the event include mingling with former NFL athletes from the Indianapolis Colts, live music, art by nationally renowned painters, food, drinks and a live auction of exclusive items to benefit charity.
“We’re going to have a great time and raise money for Riley Hospital for Children” said Bill Schultz, NFL Alumni Indianapolis chapter president. “Included on the list for auction is a 2012 Super Bowl ticket raffle, memorabilia autographed by the most famous athletes in the world of sports, vacation getaways at beautiful golf courses and spas, and many additional items.”

A charitable donation of $25 per person will be accepted as admission to the downtown Hard Rock.

The NFL Alumni organization is composed of former players, coaches and game officials. While the organization was formed nationally in the 1950s, and the local chapter was launched in the early 1990s, local leaders have made a big push to become much more active in the local community over the last couple years.

In addition to working with children’s hospitals and health organizations, the Indianapolis chapter is involved in a number of educational and youth mentoring initiatives as well.

The local NFL Alumni chapter meets monthly, and in addition to its local auction party, hosts an annual golf outing each September to raise money for charity. This year, the golf outing is being hosted by Prairie View Golf Club.

  1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

  2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

  3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

  4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

  5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
