The City of Fort Wayne hopes local citizens and businesses will chip in to help the community bring home the title of All-America City. Right now, the City is trying to raise money to send a delegation to Tampa, Florida where they will make presentations hoping to convince the judges that Fort Wayne is deserving of the All-America City designation. The award is bestowed by the National Civic League.

In response to the City’s plea for help, a number of local businesses and organizations have already pledged to pitch in to support the delegation with travel scholarships and other travel expenses.

Here’s a list of some of the fundraising events scheduled so far:
