There is not much better in this world than spending a beautiful, sunny day on the golf course.

I'm about to check all three of those boxes for you - so keep reading if that sounds interesting.

Swinging for Wishes

Southern Indiana Make-A-Wish invites you to its 14 annual golf scramble fundraiser on June 19th. Can you think of a better way to spend a Monday? This year's event feels more important than ever as there are 63 local children that are still waiting for their wishes. You can help the cause by playing golf, by bidding on silent auction items, or both.

We're raising money for 63 local Wish kids currently awaiting Wishes. The average Wish cost $11,000. The OKI chapter is the largest and grants the most Wishes, granting nearly 20,000 Wishes all-time.
