Perks not the point

January 28, 2012

Per Anthony Schoettle’s [Jan. 23] article on the unprecedented local corporate support to help the city land the Super Bowl, I was disappointed by the lack of context given to the only quote used from our interview.

I did confirm the initial donor gift package we received by saying: “Yeah, that’s it,” but followed with, “and Gregory & Appel had no expectations beyond that.” Starting the article with that first part alone seemed to indicate a disappointment that simply was not there.

Our firm has been in downtown Indianapolis for over 128 years and we were thrilled to have been an early donor company. The Super Bowl Host Committee has done a fantastic job and we think that this investment in our city will be money well spent after a terrific Super Bowl XLVI experience.
