Earn $100 – Indy 500 Gift Shop Sign Up

The time has come to sign up for this year’s IMS Gift Shop slots.  For those that are new to the program, THIS is our biggest fundraising event of the year.  Marching band, Concert band, Color Guard, Jazz Band… this is available to EVERYONE to earn some $$ towards your yearly dues.

The New Palestine Performing Arts Program has the exclusive opportunity to run the huge air-conditioned gift shop by the Start/Finish Line of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for all of the month of May.  This means we need a lot of volunteers.  Simply put, this event keeps our yearly dues from being substantially higher.  Parent involvement is crucial, as each day needs to be fully staffed.  If we are short, and we can’t perform to the level the Speedway requires, we may loose this amazing opportunity.

Parents, grandparents, relatives and friends are all invited to help.  Students are also invited to help, as long as they are 16 and older.  Please check your calendar and reserve your preferred date(s) ASAP.  First come, first served!


Once you have signed up, please print out and complete the IMS Release, located at the bottom of the IMS Gift Sign Up Newsletter.


*NEW* for signing up, and working a full shift, your students account will be credited $50! (maximum of 2 credits per student account).  That’s $100 off your dues!  Plus, your student account will receive a portion of the profits our organization receives, based on our sales!  There is also a sweet merchandise discount, if you are wanting any Indianapolis Motor Speedway gear/memorabilia.  It really is a WIN-WIN-WIN.

Tasks include:
Working a check out register
Restocking merchandise
Selling programs
Being a general helper/runner
Working in the back room prepping shirts/hats

Everyone is invited to sign up for more than 2 shifts, but there is a maximum of two $50 credits for any one students account.  There is no limitation to your access to the profit sharing portion of the arrangement.  If you work, the profit sharing applies.

If you have any questions, please contact Angie Campbell

Thank you in advance for volunteering & lets have some fun!
