Indianapolis Indians Diamond Dig, Sponsored by Indiana 811 and Citizen's Energy Group
Citizens Energy Group and Indiana 811 will host the third annual Diamond Dig on Friday, Aug. 16 at the Indianapolis Indians game at Victory Field. Fifty fans – equipped with only a spoon – will dig up a portion of the infield in search of a one karat diamond provided by Shane Company. Only one lucky contestant will return home with a diamond, but all fans at the game will leave with a valuable reminder to always call Indiana 811 before digging.


Common Ground Alliance Reminds NASCAR Fans at Kentucky Speedway to Know What's Below 
The Common Ground Alliance announced plans for a season-long promotion at Kentucky Speedway that will remind race fans to always call 811 before digging through strategically placed signage. CGA will work with Kentucky Speedway to install decals that feature the 811 logo and an image of an open hole with buried utility lines below it, which will be affixed in high-traffic locations on the concourse and midway. The 811 message will also reach fans through signage in the pedestrian tunnel that connects the grandstand to the infield, as well as public service announcements throughout the season. This promotion is made possible through the financial partnership of ten CGA members, including Indiana 811. 

Indiana 811 Thanks Firehouses for Supporting National Safe Digging Month
This spring, Indiana 811 and the Indiana Pipeline Awareness Association asked fire stations across the state to remind community members to call 811 before digging by posting an 811-related message on their marquee. All fire stations that participated received a donation of $50, and the grand prize winner, Terre Haute Fire Department, received a donation of $200. All donations were made possible through Vectren’s and NIPSCO's support of Indiana 811.
