Today the 500 Festival announces a renewed partnership with Omaze, the leading fundraising platform that offers the chance to win once-in-a-lifetime prizes to support charities, and to offer individuals the chance to win a 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Donations from the sweepstake support the 500 Festival Foundation, whose mission is to ensure relevance, reach, and sustainability of the 500 Festival’s mission to enrich lives and foster positive community impact and celebrate the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.
One lucky winner will receive the keys to an all-new 2022 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The sweepstakes will run from May 16 to August 12, 2022. Those who enter before May 20 will also be entered for the chance to win $100,000.
Funds raised will be granted to the 500 Festival Foundation to support the 500 Festival’s free education, health, and leadership development programs and initiatives ensuring all Hoosiers feel connected, welcomed, and celebrated each year, while also providing access to underserved communities. From college scholarships for Indiana’s brightest college leaders to a free curriculum for our state’s 4th-grade classrooms to a free program designed to combat childhood obesity and teach kids the importance of leading a healthy, active lifestyle – the 500 Festival Foundation’s investments help enhance the lives of Indiana’s youth and provide a calendar of community activities that invite the participation of all Hoosiers and showcase Indianapolis on a global stage.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Omaze once again to benefit the 500 Festival Foundation’s commitment to bringing meaningful celebrations of the Indianapolis 500 to more youth and families throughout Indianapolis and Indiana,” said Executive Director of the 500 Festival Foundation Christine Swarm. “After two years without the events and programs that make the Month of May in Indianapolis so special, we’re grateful for the opportunity to highlight the important impact the 500 Festival has on our community.”
“Partnering with organizations like the 500 Festival is something that we know our customers love. Last year, the Omaze community delivered over $120,000 through this partnership” said Matt Pohlson, CEO, Omaze. “Watching Chase from Roanoke drive off in the 2021 Stingray was pretty awesome, too. I can’t wait to see us deliver real impact again this year.”
Participants can enter for their chance to win beginning today until August 12, 2022. For more information, to enter for your chance to win, or to read the official rules, please visit omaze.com/winacorvette.
