Fair Commission Gives More Cash To Stage Collapse Victims

A stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair Saturday prior to a performance by the country music duo Sugarland.

The Indiana State Fair Commission Wednesday dispersed more funding from the State Fair Relief Fund to victims of the August 13 rigging collapse. This is the third round of payments issued to eligible claimants since last fall.

To date, more than $1 million has been contributed to the fund.   Payments from the relief fund come from donor gifts and are not considered compensation for injuries or death resulting from the accident.

Donations may still be made to the remembrance fund through the Central Indiana Community Foundation until October 31.
