The Tailgating with the Colts fundraiser was created last year as a catalyst for the ICWO to be better able to help the surrounding communities. Through the funds raised last year the ICWO was able to support organizations including the Julian Center, The Villages, Breast Cancer Research, and IPS School #88.
The ICWO was started back in the mid-90s. The Women of the Colts come together with a similar desire, which includes trying to find ways to help and better their Indianapolis community. The Organization provides volunteer opportunities, community outreach and networking for all women associated with the Colts organization. The ICWO is made up of coaches and players wives, employee spouses, as well as female employees. These women represent positive change and community belonging which stems from what the Indianapolis Colts hope to achieve as a whole.
A rumor soon began making the rounds that tailgating would be prohibited in the new, smaller Lucas Oil Stadium lot.
That's not exactly accurate. According to Fred Laughlin, vice president of management services for Indianapolis Downtown Inc., tailgating simply isn't an option in the 1,400-space lot next to the Lucas Oil Stadium.
"All those spaces are pretty much spoken for" by suite holders, team employees, players, select VIPs and stadium operations personnel, he said.
"Wherever you were tailgating and parking last year is probably where you'll be tailgating and parking this year," he said.
Randy Collins and a couple of thousand others will be tailgating in a 500-space lot at the intersection of South and Pennsylvania streets, approximately three blocks from Lucas Oil Stadium.
Collins, the president of Blue Crew, Indy's largest tailgating club, sells those spaces for $190 per season.
"We'd love to be under the stadium, but we've got a nice view of the city," Collins said. "It's not a bad walk for us."
As in the past, tailgating is encouraged in some lots and discouraged in others at the discretion of each lot's manager.
