Organized by former collegiate golfer Wyatt Larkin, the tournament’s goal is to raise funds and awareness for Hope For The Warriors, a national nonprofit that assists veterans, service members and military families by providing financial, career and educational stability; physical and emotional strength; and social support that builds community.

“The 2nd edition of Hoosiers For Hope has come fast and I am honored to host the event once again,” shared Larking. “Our men and women need our help and I want to make sure they get what they need to be successful and live great lives away from the tour of duty.

“Their war will continue forever as the injuries sustained wage on. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice, and the least we can do is give back to the families who have given everything. Help us in our quest to aid service members and their families around the U.S. and in the state of Indiana.”

Larkin first began supporting HOPE in 2011, when he was 14 years old and first heard of the national nonprofit and its mission. That year he raised money for the organization with a donation for every birdie he made during the competition.

“Wyatt blew us away with his inaugural tournament last year,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president of the nonprofit organization. “As a longtime supporter of Hope For The Warriors, we’re honored to have Wyatt’s continued support assisting the military families that we serve.”

In 2022, in inaugural Hoosiers For Hope Golf Tournament raised over $30,000 to support Hope For The Warriors programs.
