Indiana District of Kiwanis first began assisting the Riley Children’s Foundation two years before it opened its doors in 1924, Sullivan said, when clubs across the state raised $150,000 to help build the original hospital. Since then, its fundraising efforts have contributed toward the addition of a helipad, pediatric trauma center, mobile intensive care unit, renovations in surgical units and $1 million toward the hospital’s Simon Family Tower.
The team from Gundrum Funeral Home won the tournament with a score of 13 under par.
“It was a great day and a lot of great people,” said Kiwanis Club of Logansport President Tom Nelson. “My hat is off to my fellow Kiwanians who made this happen. I couldn’t be everywhere at once and they stepped up to the plate. I think we had a great day.”
