Ronald McDonald House Recruits Dawgs for a Tall Task
In January, our Bulldogs helped Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana take down and put away all their Christmas decorations throughout the House. They called the right team in to help, as no ladders were required! Our student athlete Ambassadors also brought in a supply of snacks for RMH families to grab as they go about their busy days. Looking forward to more opportunities to partner with this meaningful organization making a difference right here in Central Indiana.
Ho Ho Ho!! It's off to the North Pole the Dawgs go!!
Some very large Bulldog elves celebrated the season with A Kid Again families at the Lift Academy (Republic Airways) near the Indianapolis airport in early December. The hangar was transformed into a winter wonderland as nearly 1,000 excited kids and families enjoyed games, gifts, snacks and of course the highlight of the day--a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus! The players helped entertain the kids by handing out milk and cookies, helping them select gifts in Santa's Workshop, busting some moves on the dance floor, and even copiloting the flight simulator! What a privilege to spend time with these deserving families at such a special time of the year!
Keep Indianapolis Beautiful + Bulldogs = Cleaner, Greener Indy
Twice this past Fall, Butler Men's Basketball joined forces with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc to plant trees and pick up neighborhood debris and trash. A great opportunity for the Dawgs to embrace their new hometown, the guys rolled up their sleeves and got to work. Planting trees in the Kennedy-King neighborhood, the players even got to plant a tree in front of a home flying a Butler flag--Bulldogs are everywhere! Then a few weeks later, they donned safety jackets, grabbers and a bucket, cleaning up a neighborhood very near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. "Shooting" 100%, the Dawgs filled up alot of buckets!
A Kid Again teams up with All Good Dawgs for Tailgate Fun
Always a fun time when A Kid Again families gather for an Adventure with All Good Dawgs ambassadors. And on September 9, games, pizza, prizes and football were all a part of the adventure as families tailgated with the players and then caught a Butler Football home game. Here's a highlight video of that day and the inspiring kids that make it so worthwhile! We dare you not to smile!
