PUP & BULTER UNIVERSITY TO SELL SEATS FROM HINKLE FIELDHOUSE. PROCEEDS WILL HELP FUND THE INSTALLATION OF ROUGHLY 40 SEATS THROUGHOUT INDIANAPOLIS AND BUTLER'S CAMPUS.
Butler University and People for Urban Progress (PUP) celebrated Earth Day by announcing a partnership to salvage a piece of Hinkle Fieldhouse history. On June 7, the general public will have an opportunity to purchase seats that were removed from the fieldhouse as part the building’s ongoing renovation. An exclusive pre-sale will be held the day before for Butler men’s basketball season-ticket holders.
The seats—$100 each—will be for sale from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the CUE Farm at Butler, located next to the intramural fields west of 52nd Street and Boulevard Place. They will be sold “as-is” and will be available as singles, pairs, or in sets of three. Buyers should be prepared to carry away their seats after completing the purchase.
Proceeds will raise money for PUP to do public installations of seats around Indianapolis, and for Hinkle Fieldhouse renovations.
