The 14th annual Arni’s Charity Classic will be held on Thursday, September 15th at beautiful Purgatory Golf Club in Noblesville, IN.

Over the past 13 years, the Arni’s Charity Classic has raised over $500,000 for Central Indiana charitable organizations, including the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund, Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Arnold I. Cohen Memorial Endowment at Purdue, DAMAR, Tatum’s Bags of Fun and PALS (Purdue Athletes Life Success).

This year, our primary recipient will again 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. Our children have had to fight battles that children should not have to fight and go through miserable treatments that make them sick for days on end. It’s easy to forget what childhood is all about; granting their wishes gives these brave children something to look forward to, helping to build strength and hope for their futures.

We will also continue to raise money for the Arnold I. Cohen Memorial Faculty Endowment Award. Arni Cohen, founder of Arni’s Restaurants was known for his long history of community involvement and is a member of the Indiana Restaurant Association Hall of Fame. The 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 beneficiaries this year include: DAMAR, Tatum’s Bags of Fun and PALS in West Lafayette.

A large part of our success comes from items donated for door prizes and our silent and live auctions held at the event. Please consider sharing a gift certificate, tickets, autographed item or anything else that might help us in our efforts. Thank you very much for your consideration and generosity. For more information, please contact Megan Frank at (317) 571-0077 or We would be happy to pick up your donation in person or you may mail it to our Indianapolis store at 4705 East 96th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46240. Sponsors and participants are also encouraged to visit to register.
