MIDDLETON (WKOW) – Golfers clicked the links on Thursday as part of a fundraiser to support cancer research in children.

Northwestern Mutual organized the sixth annual Driving Out Childhood Cancer Golf Cup at Middleton’s Pleasant View Golf Course.

“Despite the fact that thousands of children in the United States are diagnosed with cancer each year, only about 4% of national cancer funding goes to finding a cure for childhood cancer, raising money to find a cure,” said Sandy Botcher from Northwestern Mutual.

The event included a raffle and a live auction led by 27 sporting director Lance Veeser.
