Finish Line is a long-time customer of VASEY. One reason both our organizations believe in giving back and making a positive impact on our community. We helped support the Finish Line Youth Foundation (Special Olympics) and attended their annual Fundraising dinner, An Epic Evening, last fall at the Biltwell Event Center, featuring Carli Lloyd as our keynote speaker. Carli Lloyd, an American soccer player (two-time Olympic gold medalist, two-time FIFA Women's World Cup champion, two-time FIFA Player of the Year, and a three-time Olympian) shared the power of soccer in developing her perseverance, unmatched focus, commitment to the game, and [...]

Congratulations to the University High School Boys Varsity Baseball Team – winning their first-ever Division 1A Baseball State Championship on June 17, 2019, at Victory Field. VASEY, a long-time partner of University High School, takes care of their campus’s mechanical needs.

On Thursday, June 20th, VASEY attended the "Inside the Bottle for Outside the Box" Fundraiser, a Food and Wine Tasting Extravaganza at the beautiful Lucas Estate in Carmel, IN. VASEY had the privilege of being one of two ticket sponsors for this very special event. Guests of Outside the Box (OTB) enjoyed a tasting of fine wines and beers, an array of food from local, independent restaurants, and the opportunity to bid on silent and live auctions. To learn more about Outside the Box, or make a donation please visit www.otbonline.org.
One of the joys in giving is that invariably you seem to benefit just as much as if not more than your recipient. This is especially true of our company-wide summer project for Outside the Box, an Indianapolis non-profit organization dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities. Our dear friends at OTB made these wonderful gifts for us. How tremendous to be remembered and receive these beautiful, unexpected gifts during this holiday season. To learn more, donate or volunteer at Outside the Box, please visit their website at www.otbonline.org.
At the end of June, we installed 20 air conditioning units at Outside the Box in Indianapolis, IN. Founded in 2008, Outside the Box (OTB) supports more than 250 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. OTB's goal for both employees and participants is the opportunity for individualized growth. Whether in the curriculum based Day Program, the creative arts experience of Studio OTB, or the customized Employment Services, they want all people to be the best they can be. Our team of VASEY volunteers spent their Saturday morning bringing much-needed comfort to everyone at the OTB facility. [...]
