INDIANAPOLIS- Groups looking to raise some extra money for their churches, schools, or clubs may now apply for fundraising opportunities with the 2016 Indiana State Fair. It takes around 600 people to staff parking and gates and upwards of $85,000 is expected to go to fundraising organizations this year for their help.
The 2016 Indiana State Fair runs from August 5-21 and there will be two, seven hour shifts per day. Each participant will make $7.00 an hour for their group and there is no limit to the number of shifts a group can sign up for.
The last day to register for these fundraising opportunities is July 15th. All registration fees and contracts are due by the day of orientation, July 31st.
