Killebrew-Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament provides decades of support for Masonic Cancer Center research

Every August for the past 38 years, the Killebrew-Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament in Sun Valley, Idaho has gathered celebrities, sponsors, participants, members of Congress and supporters with one common goal: to find a cure for cancer and leukemia. Founded 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 of its kind for cancer research.

Proceeds from the event benefit the St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute in Boise and the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota. Due to the dedicated commitment of our supporters over the years, the Tournament has raised in excess of $13.8 million which has gone directly to cancer and leukemia research.
