INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – There was putt-putt golf for charity on the north side of town Saturday night.

A famous Hoosier lent his talents to the 6th annual Dayspring Mini-Gold classic. IndyCar’s Ed Carpenter and his wife Heather were on hand to support a cause that provides shelter to homeless families.

Three teams bid to have Carpenter in their group for six holes. It paid off big time as the auction alone netted $2,300 for the Dayspring Center.

“This is kind of a wild event,” Carpenter said. “I think there’s like pool cues we’ll be playing with, hockey sticks, so we’re not going to be using putters all the time, so it will be different than any putt-putt I’ve done before. There’s a contest for most creative team spirit. There’s going to be teams bidding for me to play with them which I don’t know if that will help them win or not, but just going to have some fun and generate some awareness for this great cause.”
