The Heroes Club of Carmel will play host to the 22nd annual Golf 4 Heroes fundraiser Oct. 14 at Prairie View Golf Club, 7000 Longest Dr., in Carmel. The event raises money for local public safety officers.
The club was established in 1996 to support members of public safety and law enforcement. Its mission is to provide financial assistance and resources for the Carmel Police Dept. and Carmel Fire Dept. as well as members of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and Indiana State Police who serve the city of Carmel and Clay Township.
“We fund a $250,000 life insurance policy that is paid out to the family of local public safety and law enforcement if they are killed in the line of duty,” said Bill Nicholls, The Heroes Club president.
The golf outing is an an opportunity for its members and Carmel businesses to demonstrate support for local public safety officers. Participants join police officers and firefighters in a round of golf, and each community player sponsors a public safety officer through their golfing fees.
“What is really cool about this golf outing is that when you pay to play, you are also paying for a member of the public safety community to play as well,” Nicholls said. “My favorite thing is I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know all these wonderful men and women affiliated with these organizations.”
Registration starts at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10 a.m.
“We start the day with the Pledge of Allegiance, and we recognize all of the unfortunate casualties nationally in terms of fallen first responders,” Nicholls said. “We thank everybody that continues to call this their occupation, and then we go into a fun little golf outing.”
The cost to register is $300 for one player, $550 for two players and $1,050 for a team. For more, visit carmelheroesclub.com/news-events.
