Madison, Wisconsin – The UW Carbone Cancer Center and professional golfer Andy North are excited to announce that the 2018 Andy North & Friends fundraising event and charity golf outing will return to Kalahari Resorts and Conventions in the Wisconsin Dells for their tenth anniversary event.
“We are thrilled to return to where it all began to celebrate our 10th year and the nearly $10 million dollars we’ve raised so far for cancer research” said Andy North. The event will be held June 3rd and 4th, starting with an evening fundraising event followed by a golf outing at Trappers Turn Golf Club, a course designed by North. The event was last held at The Kalahari Resorts and Convention Center and Trappers Turn in 2014.
Funds raised have been donated to multiple pilot research projects ranging from therapies for head and neck cancer, a prostate-cancer vaccine, and a study of follow-up care for breast cancer patients. The UW Carbone Cancer Center is Wisconsin’s only federally-designated comprehensive cancer center and combines cutting-edge research with outstanding patient care.
