Join UWPC as we Celebrate Indiana's Bicentennial

     Indiana Association of United Ways (IaUW) is excited to facilitate the Bison-tennial Public Art Project in partnership with the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.  This officially endorsed legacy project aims to celebrate Indiana’s rich and diverse history and unique features. 

     What better way to celebrate the state’s 200th birthday than with a Public Art Project?  Artists will decorate 5-foot-tall fiberglass bison for public display throughout Indiana.  The end goal is that at least one – if not a herd – of bison will be on display in each of Indiana’s 92 counties. 

     The bison are expected to be complete around May of 2016, with appearances in the local community throughout the summer.  These public art pieces will also be highlighted along the Bicentennial Torch Relay route, running from September 9 through October 15, 2016, culminating in Indiana’s Bicentennial Statehood Day on December 11, 2016. 

      “We at United Way of Perry County are excited for this unique way to engage our community in this state-wide project.  We believe this is a great opportunity to display our county pride and individuality while boosting awareness about Indiana United Ways and Funds’ community efforts and initiatives,” said Linda Reed, President of the United Way of Perry County Board of Trustees.   

     IaUW welcomes Hoosiers across the state to get involved in this project.  Interested sponsors, artists and community organizations may contact their local United Way or IaUW for county-specific details for the project.  Information will be posted soon at   

     “We encourage businesses and organizations to help sponsor a bison in each of Indiana’s 92 counties!  We understand this would be the first-of-its-kind statewide public art project in the country.  Hoosiers may join forces with Indiana’s United Ways in celebration of our 200th Statehood Day,” remarked Perry Hammock, Executive Director of the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.

Human Foozball Fundraiser!

Are you ready to try something fun and new during Schweizer Fest?  Then United Way of Perry County has the event for you on Saturday, August 8th...Human Foozball!!!  If you're not a runner, basketball/baseball player or cycler, you can still participate in a fun-filled activity during Schweizer Fest. All you need is your own two feet.   And the good news is that No Backflip Experience is Necessary! 

What is Human Foozball, you ask?  Well, it is a fun filled, action packed game of two teams of seven (7) people, holding onto a series of rotating poles, trying to shoot/kick a soccer ball through the opposing teams’ goal.  Just like the table game but with live people instead of wood figures/paddles.  

The tourney will be held in City Hall Park between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. with each game lasting 30 minutes.   The cost per player is $20 or $140 per team of 7 players. T-shirts are available for an extra $10 fee.  Register by July 27 in order to participate in this fun filled activity. All proceeds will benefit a great organization: United Way of Perry County.      

Several Human Foozball games will be played at the Perry County 4-H Fair on Saturday, July 11 at 12:30 and 1:30 pm so come to the Fair to see Human Foozball in action.
