Noblesville’s Purgatory Golf Club hosted its fifth annual Be A Hero 4 Kids charity golf event June 9 to benefit Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, sponsored by Farmers Insurance and Moore Restoration.

Nearly 100 supporters purchased tee times, which included gifts, awards and food in addition to green and cart fees. Guests were also entered into and participated in the longest-drive, closest-to-pin and long-putt contests, along with a Colts “Catch Like-A-Pro” experience, which included access to a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, and prizes.

Approximately $6,000 was raised as a result of the tournament, and all funds will go to help grant wishes to children battling life-threatening medical conditions in Indiana, like sixteen-year-old Bella of Carmel.

Diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma, Bella said she dreamed of visiting the Aulani Disney Resort in Hawaii with her family.  Through Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, Bella’s wish came true as she visited Hawaii in early June.  Bella attended the event.
