100 Holes for the Homeless 2014
$45,487 Raised by 33 Golfers in 30 Days!
Top Golfer – Brock Ward
Top Fundraiser – Bob Desrosiers – $4,165 raised (see picture)
Second Place Fundraiser – Gary Reinwald – $3,650 raised
Out of the 33 golfers, 24 of them hit their goal of raising $1,000. The donation total was up 45% from last year! Overall, this event has raised around $130,000 to help the homeless in our 4 years of doing it.
This year, we had five celebrities come out and play with some of our top fundraisers: Todd Klaassen (RTV6), Dana Huntsinger-Benbow (Indianapolis Star), Kurt Wallace (88.3 Shine.FM), Troy Kehoe (WishTV8), and Kyle Knezevich (ESPN Radio).
Why play 100 Holes? Here’s what some golfers said:
“I love golf and I know what Wheeler Mission is all about from living in Central Indiana all my life. I thought it was a good time to get involved and give back. So much negativity in the world today, doing something like this will be rewarding.”
“I want to help because I have volunteered at Wheeler for about 5 years and this is simply an additional and fun way to help.”
“We’re commanded by our Lord to feed the hungry and provide shelter.”
“I have volunteered at Wheeler before and donated, but this sounded like fun.”
Thank you to our 2014 sponsors
