Event raises money for independent filmmakers
By Anna Skinner
Golf and film lovers alike now have a fundraising event to attend to help raise money for independent filmmakers and their films from around the world.
Heartland Film Hundred Holes of Golf has film submissions from 96 nations, according to senior manager Susan Frenzel.
“It’s a great way to support a local arts organization that connects Indianapolis with independent filmmakers and their films from around the world,” Frenzel said. “The board is spearheading this inaugural event and board members have been encouraged to participate either by playing, putting a team together, being a caddie, recruiting friends to play or volunteering the day of the event. There is no entry fee! Each player or team fundraises by sending out their player page to their personal contacts.”

The duration of the fundraiser is for three months, resulting in the day long 100 holes of golf with 36 players and their caddies at the Broadmoor Country Club in Indianapolis.
And although there is no fee for participation, but the goal for the golfers is to reach $1,000 each in fundraiser and the caddies to reach $500 each.
Out of the $50,000 donation goal, the website has currently reached approximately $34,700.
