They’re cuddly. They’re cute. And they’re ready for YOUR vote!
On today’s Indy Style, Kylie Dennis, President, Give Hope, Fight Poverty at IUPUI, and Megan Kaser, Board Member, Give Hope, Fight Poverty, tell us about the Corgi Limbo & Costume Contest!
Cute Corgis to converge at charity event
About the Corgi Limbo & Costume Contest:
This is the 3rd Corgi event (2 have been held at Purdue), but this is the 1st Corgi event in Indianapolis. It’s at IUPUI’s Carroll stadium at 1pm on Sunday, April 14th. You can buy your tickets at the event, but it’s recommended to purchase them online. We still have room for more Corgis to register. Lots of great local businesses donated prizes. We’re eager to pass these on to spectators and corgis such Holiday World tickets and items from the Indianapolis Colts & Indians. We also have some great dog prizes to give away. It’s tons of fun watching the dogs compete in costume contests and a limbo contest including a cuddly meet and greet for spectators purchasing the VIP tickets. Fresh Pop’D Popcorn Company will be selling popcorn and fresh lemonade. The costume contest winners will be decided by the spectators. You will cast your vote on your favorite costumes by donating money to your favorite corgi’s box! The winning Corgi will of course get a prize!
About Give Hope, Fight Poverty:
Give Hope, Fight Poverty (GHFP) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster philanthropy domestically by designing service-learning programs that engage US students & professionals with rural communities in Swaziland, Africa and work together to educate, empower and lift orphaned and vulnerable children – particularly those living in child-headed households – out of poverty.
Swaziland, Africa has the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence in the world
* Countless children have been orphaned as a result of this deadly disease, left to fend for themselves
* Orphan headed households are common with kids challenged to provide for their brothers and sisters
* Schools are not free and these orphans, suffering from dire poverty, have little means to secure a viable future
All funds from the Corgi Limbo & Costume Contest goes to Give Hope, Fight Poverty. 100% of the funds will go toward educational programming for children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic in the Kingdom of eSwatini. The Indiana furbabies are making a difference in the lives of children across the world. The organization has a club at Purdue, where the Corgi Race was founded, and a new chapter at IUPUI.
