INDIANAPOLIS (Thursday, April 29, 2021) – Red Gold, an American owned, grown and made tomato manufacturer, announces a new partnership with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway featuring the Folds of Honor Practice Day, presented by Red Gold on Thursday, May 20th.
Red Gold launched the partnership in 2020 with the Folds of Honor Foundation which awards educational scholarships to family members of fallen or disabled military heroes.
In 1942, Red Gold started manufacturing tomatoes to support the military men and women in WWII. Nearly 80 years later, the 4th generation family-owned company stays true to its roots supporting the Folds of Honor mission; Honoring their Sacrifice, Educating their Legacy.
Fans of the 105th Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge will have the opportunity to join the cause by attending the May 20th practice day, donating directly to Folds of Honor Indiana through a virtual Race, and joining in a fundraising auction effort online.
