The Lafayette Aviators announce partnership with Tippecanoe County WIC Program

 

The Lafayette Aviators are proud to announce a new partnership with the Tippecanoe County Women Infants and Children (WIC) Program, with support from Riley Physicians Pediatrics at Indiana University Health Arnett. This partnership helps to bring the Aviators Kids Club to Lafayette area children.

The Aviators have a Free Kids Club and a VIP Kids Club – both available to all children 14 and under. The Free Kids Club provides members with complimentary admission to two games during the summer, as well as a free water bottle. The VIP Kids Club includes three flexible ticket vouchers, Aviators sunglasses courtesy of IU Health Arnett, the water bottle, a pass to Tropicanoe Cove Water Park, a free train ticket for the Columbian Park Zoo Express, and a pre-game picnic with the players – all for only $20!

“We really like the idea of WIC hosting a game and being present on site to promote and educate more about what we do,” said Coordinator of the Tippecanoe County WIC Program, Alicia Keen. “We feel like partnering with the Kids Club would be appealing to current and potential WIC families, and hopefully would then be more interested in receiving additional information about this aspect of our collaboration with the Aviators.”  WIC staff will be on site during the popular Team Photo Night, to take place on Friday, June 21.  Fans in attendance will receive a complimentary keepsake team photo.

“The Aviators partnering with WIC is great for the community,” said Aviators Business Development Manager, Tracy Fuller. “Not only do they support those in need, but they also educate the area around us in order to create a happier and healthier lifestyle,” Fuller continued.
