GOSHEN, Ind. (WNDU) -More than 40 disc golfing teams braved the conditions for this year’s Maple City Ice Bowl in Goshen.

The event wasn’t just for the competition, but also to raise money for the Window food bank in Goshen.

This year’s goal was to raise $2,000 for those facing food insecurity.

They shattered expectations by raising roughly $20,000.

While it was a competitive event featuring the men who built the course in the ’80s, some other top-level disc golfers, and even Goshen’s Mayor, the real prize the opportunity to give back in a big way.

“Hopefully, this will also spark other people to think about their local food banks, whether that’s in Elkhart, or South Bend, or up in Niles or Buchanan. There’s food banks all across our community that could use our help,” said Maple City Ice Bowl organizer Jason Samuel.

Ice Bowl is an international network of disc golf tournaments. Be on the lookout for them in your area during the winter months.
