Upcoming Party at Riley Begins Countdown to The Hulk Super Hero Night
Victory Field will welcome the alter ego of Bruce Banner as he makes a “smashing” appearance when the Indianapolis Indians host The Hulk-themed Super Hero Night on Saturday, June 25. Today, nine days prior to this event, the Indians and corporate sponsors Elements Financial and Indy Tire & Auto Service are throwing a preview party for Riley kids in the Child Life Zone at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health. This opportunity will provide the patients and their families with a break from their rooms and routines to play games, make crafts and spend time with the Indians and volunteers from Elements and Indy Tire & Auto Service.
To kick off the party, a specialty Hulk jersey will be unveiled by the Indians players at noon. These jerseys will be worn by the Indians and auctioned off throughout the game on Super Hero Night with all funds going to Riley Children’s Foundation, the event beneficiary as chosen by Elements and Indy Tire & Auto Service.
