Killebrew-Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament

Killebrew-Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament

August 15 – 18, 2012

Every August for the past 35 years, the Danny Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament in Sun Valley, Idaho has gathered celebrities, sponsors, participants, Members of Congress and supporters with one common goal: the cure for cancer and leukemia.

Started in 1976 by Harmon Killebrew and Ralph Harding, in memory of the Minnesota Twins shortstop, Danny Thompson, the Tournament is now considered one of the leading fundraisers for cancer research.  Last August the Board of Directors voted to honor the memory of Harmon Killebrew and his many contributions by adding the Killebrew name to its title.

We are proud to announce that the 2011 contribution to the recipients was $700,000. The proceeds from the event go to the University of Minnesota Cancer Research Center in Minneapolis and to the St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute in Boise.  Due to the participation and support of nationally known celebrities and corporate sponsors, the tournament has not only raised in excess of $12 million that has gone directly to cancer and leukemia research, but over the years those funds have been used in various matching grant programs that have been leveraged to the million dollar level annually.

"The contributions by the Danny Thompson Golf Tournament, critical in and of itself, has leveraged additional research funds of well over $25 million."  President Emeritus Robert Bruininks, University of Minnesota.

Becoming a part of this very worthy cause not only makes important strides in cancer and leukemia research possible, but also means four days of enjoyment for you and your guests in beautiful Sun Valley, Idaho.  We encourage you to participate in the upcoming event, which has been set for August 15-18, 2012.
