Recap from Wednesday, June 6th.
Each year we have the honor of presenting our beneficiaries with the contribution you helped make possible. This year, we’ve teamed up with the Minnesota Twins to present the 2017 check of $500,000 to the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota on Target Field. Incase you missed the live stream, you can rewatch it here, on our Facebook page.
Our connection to the Minnesota Twins goes back to the 1970’s, when Harmon Killebrew and Danny Thompson both played for the Twins and were roommates. In 1976, when Thompson lost his brave and public battle with leukemia, Killebrew was inspired to help raise funds to further leukemia research. And so, the first Killebrew-Thompson Memorial tournament was born. Now, 42-years later, the KTM has raised a whopping $16.6 million for cancer research.
