Iconic Golfers Support Legendary Care

Riley Children’s Foundation is the proud beneficiary of the Senior LPGA Championship presented by Old National Bank. As the fundraising organization for Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, revolutionizing care and seeking cures ranks as the critical top priority. In February 2017 Resort Charity Events pledged to donate a minimum of $200,000 a year ($1 million) from the 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 Senior LPGA Championship. With the help of some of the greatest names in women's golf, the organization has been able to contribute more than $630,000 to date to Riley Children's Foundation. With the added support of the LPGA that began in 2017, the Senior LPGA Championship is on par to raise even more money for the children of Indiana.

 

Support for Riley Children’s Foundation offers hope to families seeking help for seriously ill and injured children; help that only Riley Hospital for Children can provide. Riley Hospital ranks in eight pediatric specialties according to U.S. News & World Report’s “2018-19 Best Children’s Hospitals” report. Each year children from all 92 Indiana counties turn to Riley Hospital and its regional clinics throughout the state more than 300,000 times. Without external financial support, the dedicated medical team at Riley Hospital could not sustain and expand the expert, compassionate care and pediatric research breakthroughs. Generous donors also allow Riley Hospital to provide cutting-edge facilities and cover the costs of medical specialty areas that are not self-sustaining.

 

Evan Noble

Throughout championship week, Evan Noble and other grateful Riley families are in attendance during the Senior LPGA Championship. Evan, from Tell City, Ind., has gone from losing his breath while walking up a flight of stairs to being the MVP of his school’s golf and swim teams — thanks to a 13-inch steel bar in his chest. Evan was born with Pectus Excavatum, or a sunken sternum. When he reached sixth grade and could no longer play sports without pain, the Noble family made the three-hour drive to Riley Hospital for Children for surgery. Just months after surgery, Evan was able to return to playing the sports he loves. He has since had the bar in his chest removed, and today he is doing well as a high school freshman.
