It’s already time to prepare for the 15th annual Arni’s Charity Classic! This year we will be returning to beautiful Purgatory Golf Club in Noblesville, Indiana on Thursday, September 14, 2017. We anticipate another sold out event this year with about 150 community leaders joining us from all over the state and surrounding area to take part in this fun-filled day of giving back. 

Arni Cohen, founder of Arni’s Restaurants, was known for his long history of community involvement and we are proud to continue honoring his legacy by hosting this event each year. Since 2003, the Arni’s Charity Classic has raised over $550,000 for Central Indiana charitable organizations.

Once again, our primary recipient will be the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund. The mission of the ICWF is to put smiles on the faces of Indiana children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness by making a dream come true. Too many children are fighting for their lives an going through miserable treatments that make them sick for days on end, so it’s easy to forget what childhood is all about. By granting their wishes, we can build strength and give them something to look forward to along with hop for a better future.

We will also continue to raise money for the Arnold I. Cohen Memorial Faculty Endowment Award. Arni Cohen is a memeber fo the Indiana Restaurant Hall of Fame and this endowment was founded in his honor to help advance the education of faculty members at Purdue University’s School of Hotel and Tourism Management.

Other local charities we are proud to support through this event include Damar, Tatum’s Bags of Fun and Purdue Athletes Life Success (PALS).

It is only with the support from other businesses and our partners in the community that our event continues to be the success it has been for the past 14 years. We appreciate all your support.

For more information, please contact Megan Frank at (317) 571-0077 or Sponsors and participants are also encouraged to visit to register.
