As a fellow Chamber member, I would like to personally ask for your help with our 8th annual Cocktails for Caddies fundraiser!

As you may know, Prairie View Golf Club has a youth caddie program that exists with the intention of helping outstanding high school students of limited financial means earn the life-changing Evans Scholarship, a 4-year, full tuition and housing scholarship to either Purdue or IU. We’re proud to announce that with the addition of 3 recipients in February, we now have 16 Evans Scholarship winners in the past seven years, representing almost $2 million in financial aid. None of this happens without support from you and other like-minded folks!

Here are a few ways you can help us:

  1. Virtually bid on items between April 11th-16th. You can click here to preview auction items such as golf packages, jewelry, assorted golf equipment, liquor and wine gift baskets, and so much more.
  2. We would love to include an item or package from you, perhaps a gift certificate or other goods/services donation. If you have a fundraiser of your own, we’d be happy to reciprocate by donating a foursome of golf to your cause. Please contact Lisa at to make arrangements.
  3. Use this opportunity to simultaneously help us as well as your favorite local restaurants. Many of our favorite local restaurants typically contribute to Cocktails for Caddies but have been hit especially hard these past two years. We are kindly asking you to consider purchasing a gift certificate from your favorite local restaurant and donating it to the auction. Please contact Lisa at the above email address to make arrangements.

With your participation, you’ll be shopping, eating, and giving local AND giving kids the opportunity to earn a life-changing Evans Scholarship. Win, win, win!

Thank you for considering helping us #SendCaddiesToCollege
