INDIANAPOLIS — It's a sport you usually don't see on TV, a polo match held Friday helped raise money for an important organization.

Folds of Honor provides scholarships to spouses and children of fallen and disabled service members.

The polo match was held in Whitestown and doubled as a fundraiser for the Folds of Honor organization.

Mike Daggett, president of the Indiana chapter of Folds of Honor says this event is one way to bring their work to different audiences.

"This is just really an awesome opportunity for us to be out here spreading the word," Daggett said. "We were born in the golf community, so a number of golfers know about the folds of honor foundation and slowly but surely we try to reach other communities of people who are just patriotic Americans who want to give back."
