A charity celebrity golf tournament in its 28th year, the tournament has raised in excess of $6.5 million for leukemia and cancer research. (see tournament proceeds)
2003 Proceeds $630,000
Each year the proceeds are divided equally between the Leukemia Research Fund at the University of Minnesota and St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute in Boise, Idaho.
The planning for the 28th Annual Danny Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament is in full swing in beautiful Sun Valley Idaho. This tradition and its success endure due to the great efforts of our distinguished Sponsors, Celebrities, Members of Congress, Participants, Volunteers and Board of Directors. The fruits of these efforts translate to substantial dollars for leukemia and cancer research, a field in which important strides are being made to find a cure.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, my thanks to all who have participated and generously contributed through the years to continue on with this tradition. We are looking forward to our another successful and enjoyable event Aug 25-28, 2004.
