Anybody up for bowling with some cheerleaders?
The Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders will unveil their 2015-16 Swimsuit Calendar during a special launch party Friday at Latitude 360, 4016 E. 82nd St., Indianapolis.
The party is from 5:30 to 9 p.m. and will include the calendar release, a cheerleader autograph session and a bowling tournament. A limited number of general admission tickets are still available online at www.colts.com/cheerparty. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
General admission tickets are $20 and include an appetizer buffet, a Colts Cheerleaders Calendar ($15 value) and autograph session access. Fans wanting to participate in the bowling tournament can buy tickets for $40. Each bowling team is captained by a Colts cheerleader. A bowling team of five can be purchased for $175.
Each member of the winning bowling team will receive a pair of tickets to the Colts’ regular-season home opener Sept. 21 against the New York Jets. That’s also the same game when the Colts will induct retired center Jeff Saturday into the Ring of Honor.
A portion of the event's proceeds will benefit Tessa's Recovery Fund, which was created to support former Colts Cheerleader Tessa David as she recovers from a severe stroke. Here’s a video of Tessa’s story.
The 2015-16 Colts Cheerleaders Calendar was photographed in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Travel and accommodations were provided by Apple Vacations and Iberostar Hotels & Resorts.
The 2015 Colts Cheerleaders are sponsored in part by Tyler Mason Salon and Spa, Core Pilates & Fitness, Curtain Call Dance Studio, LA Fitness, Turkle and Associates and Varsity Spirit Fashion.
