The Allen County War Memorial Coliseum and concessions company ARAMARK paid $93,000 to 12 non-profit community groups in 2012.
The groups worked concession stands for sporting events, concerts and family shows in the arena and also sell merchandise for events. In exchange, they earned a percentage of sales.
Groups participating last year included: Fort Wayne Derby Girls, FWSC- Indiana Prospects, Hamilton Park Little League, Highland Lodge, Bishop Luers High School soccer, Leo High School Band Boosters, Bishop Luers High School softball, Sigma Pi Fraternity, South Side High School softball, North Side High School football, Central Noble High School Athletic Boosters and United Spirit Dance.
