The 2022 Karl Potach Memorial Golf Tournament, also known as Karl’s Tourney, will be held Monday, August 15th.
The annual event raises money for cancer research at The Hormel Institute for Wilms’ tumor, a rare kidney cancer that primarily affects children. Since 2008, $782.000 has been given to advance cancer research at The Hormel Institute.
Kurt and Brenda Potach lost their son Karl to Wilms’ Tumor in 1997. After friends started ‘Karl’s Tourney’ in memory of their beloved Karl, they established the Karl Potach Foundation, which has now given $782,000 to The Hormel Institute since 2008. Qiushi Wang, Ph.D., received a $50,000 award for "Identification of potential target genes in Wilms' tumor progression" this month, a project funded exclusively from the Karl Potach Foundation.
Karl’s Tourney will be held on Monday, August 15, 2022 at the Austin Country Club, starting at 12:00pm.
