Middleton golf outing supports childhood cancer research

Posted: Updated:

MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- A golf outing aimed at raising money to fight childhood cancer kicks off this week.

The Northwestern Mutual 2018 Drive Out Childhood Cancer Golf Tour is Thursday, June 7, 2018. It starts around 9 a.m. at the Pleasant View Golf Course with events continuing throughout the day.

The golf outing has been going on for three years and has raised $130,000 for Alex's Lemonade Stand, a foundation raising funds for treatments and cures for all children battling cancer. 

This year, organizers hope to raise $100,000. A Middleton fire truck will be doing a ball drop and celebrities will be making appearances.  

Organizers say golf spots are sold out, but dinner tickets are available.
