Killebrew-Thompson Golf Tournament and Huey Lewis and the News



Founded in 1976, KTM is now one of the leading fundraisers of its kind for cancer research, and has contributed $15.6 million dollars to cancer research at St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute and the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota since its inception. The idea for the KTM tournament was founded by Hall of Fame baseball legend and Idaho native, Harmon Killebrew, and Idaho Congressman Ralph Harding. Killebrew wanted a way to honor his former Minnesota Twins teammate, Danny Thompson, who died of leukemia at the young age of 29. For four decades, the Killebrew-Thompson has gathered more than 300 people from across the country participate in this lively four-day affair consisting of a two-day golf tournament, an auction gala dinner, and a benefit concert. The 2017 tournament is scheduled for August 16-19 in Sun Valley and will be the 41st year of the tournament.

If you are around for the golf tournament, then there is no reason to miss the Huey Lewis and The News Concert happening the same weekend.

Proceeds from this concert benefit leukemia and cancer research at St Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute and Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, making this the perfect opportunity to listen to amazing music while supporting a great cause.
