Fundraising For City's Super Bowl Bid On Track


Fundraising for Indy’s bid to bring the 2012 Super Bowl to the city is going well, according to the businessman who heads the bid committee.

Mark Miles says a business advisory committee has been going back to each of the companies that committed a total of $25 million a year ago for the 2011 Super Bowl.

Miles said they held a Town Hall meeting Monday at NCAA headquarters and discussed building a Super Bowl Village downtown to create a party atmosphere in the days leading up to the game.

Others at the meeting suggested making it a “green” Super Bowl, organizing it in a way that’s environmentally aware and pesents Indianapolis as an increasingly- green city.

Miles says he likes Indy’s chances of getting the game because of the city’s experience in handling other major events, like the Indy 500 and NCAA Final Four.
