Cancer research will be moving forward with the 23rd Annual “Karl’s Tourney” going forward in a new format so pediatric cancer research can continue. This year, due to COVID- 19, the popular golf tournament was canceled but organizers have been working behind the scenes to pivot from a day of golf and dinner to a weeklong event with options for anyone to join in. The goal of all involved is to end childhood cancer. 

The Karl Potach Foundation and Karl’s Touney On-Line Fundraising Event will run from August 10-August 17, 2020 and can be accessed by visiting anytime during the event. 

The event will feature an auction, with photos and descriptions of items available to bid on, matching fund opportunities, and the ability for individuals to pay the fees for the 4-somes they would have played golf with, had the tournament continued in person. Matching funds give donors the opportunity to basically double their gift because when they give $100, for example, it is matched by another $100. 

General donations will also continue to be accepted at the Karl Potach Foundation website, and if you would prefer to send a check, it can be mailed to: Karl Potach Foundation, PO Box 856, Austin, MN 55912. 

Proceeds from this tournament benefit the Children’s Cancer Research Fund and the Wilms’ Tumor Pediatric Research fund at The Hormel Institute.
