What a fun night on the field! IU Athletics - who has been a supporter of The Chamber through the Women Excel Bloomington Awards for several years - hosted a special ribbon cutting and behind-the-scenes tour of IU's Memorial Stadium on Tuesday, June 25. The event was exclusive to Chamber members and participants in the YPB program... and more than 225 guests came out for the special opportunity.
Guests entered the north end zone of Memorial Stadium and gathered in the Henke Hall of Champions. Appetizers and drinks were available for the guests, and the facility was decked out in cream and crimson.
Scott Dolson, Deputy Director of Athletics, welcomed guests in the evening, and shared about IU Athletics history and the renovations made at Memorial Stadium. Erin Predmore, president and CEO of The Chamber, thanked IU Athletics and Indiana University for their ongoing support of The Chamber and the business community.
A variety of door prizes were given out during the event, then IU Sports Marketing students and team members gathered for a ribbon cutting on the stage inside Henke Hall.
After the ribbon cutting celebration, guests were provided a special behind-the-scenes tour of Memorial Stadium. The tour included the Excellence Academy, Schwarz President's Suite, Tobias Nutrition Center, Shuel Academic Center, the IU Football Team Meeting Room and Position Rooms, Wilkinson Strength and Performance Center and wrapped up on the football field! Families grabbed photos at "The Rock," raced their kids on the field and took photos from all angles. It was a perfect night of fun for everyone... and we're grateful to IU Athletics for helping make such great memories for our Chamber members and their families!
