Kids for HOPE Pro-Am
The MACC Fund and the Balance & Believe Foundation team up to support the UW Carbone Cancer Center
Together, we WILL find a CURE
Blackhawk Country Club has a rich history of being one of the premiere private golf clubs in Madison, Wisconsin; offering incredible golf, dining, and social experiences. Looking to make a lasting impact upon kids battling cancer in our community, Blackhawk has teamed up with the MACC Fund and the Balance & Believe Foundation to raise money for childhood cancer research at the UW Carbone Cancer Center through the Kids for HOPE Pro-Am!
The Balance & Believe Foundation’s mission is to promote junior golf while providing a platform for our youth to be charitable and give back to their community. Amongst many of their charitable endeavors, the B&B Foundation is proud to support the UW Carbone Cancer Center.
The MACC Fund’s mission is to find a CURE for childhood cancer and related blood disorders by providing funding for research. In 2020, the MACC Fund began a five-year, $10,000,000 commitment to funding pediatric cancer research at the UW Carbone Cancer Center. These funds will help launch a research acceleration program focused on immunotherapy, resulting in kids being treated better, safer, and faster after diagnosis.
Join us at Blackhawk Country Club on Monday July 11, 2022 for the Kids for HOPE Pro-Am in support of the MACC Fund and the Balance & Believe Foundation as we strive to end childhood cancer and blood disorders once and for all.
Special Thanks to all of our Sponsors!
Partnering with the Balance & Believe Foundation for ‘The Longest Week of Golf’
The Longest Week of Golf is centered around promoting junior golf while raising money for the community. During the Longest week of Golf junior golfers from all over the state will choose a day to play as many holes as they can from sun up to sun down. Starting April 1st there will be a fundraising poster board in the foyer of participating golf courses for people to donate (pledge money per hole multiplied by the number of holes played). John smith donates $.50 per hole and the group plays 100 holes then John Smith owes $50. Junior players will make up foursomes to play as many holes as they can in a 2 hour block. After 2 hours the next foursome can tag in or the other group can just continue for another 2 hours. This continues throughout the day until sun down.
Our goal is that to have golf courses all over the Wisconsin participate in an attempt to raise $1,000,000! The money will be split up between our fight against cancer and growing the game of of golf.
