Rowdy Fundraiser a Success!

On Monday, March 16, New Castle Main Street had a fundraiser to raise money for free WiFi downtown. With almost 200 people in attendance we raised over $10,000.00 to pay for the initial set up costs and maintenance for the WiFi! Rowdy Roddy Piper from WWE fame was at Primo’s inaugural event. For a video of the event go to: (Patrick Calvert shot this video.)

Mr. Piper spoke about the power and importance of community. New Castle has a rich history to be proud of and we are looking forward to writing a strong future. The stronger we grow together the more power we have to mold our town into the place we want to live, work and be with our family and friends.

Main Street needs to give big thank you’s to Ray Willey and Bill Brown of Historic Properties, Inc., Katie Layman and Lindy Overpeck with Primo Restaurant and Patrick Calvert. Main Street would also like to thank New Castle Career Centers Culinary Arts Program as well as the following sponsors:

Boar’s Head

Piazza Produce


Weiland’s Flowers

Carroll Wine and Spirits

Hoosier Daddy’s
