The IDGC charity fundraising season closed out its four-event season on January 29th with the 28th Annual Indy Ice Bowl. In total, our fundraising efforts brought in $3,225.00 for Gleaners Food Bank, comfortably surpassing the goal of $2,000 in charitable donations that the club set at the beginning of our fundraising season. A check from the IDGC has been delivered to a very grateful Gleaners by IDGC’s own Jerry Suiter. For more information on the total donations we raised in individual tournaments in 2017 and in past years, see the Charity Summary page. Thanks to everyone that helped and/or participated in any of our fundraising efforts this year! Pay it forward!!!
