- Golfers in Wausau know their money will go to a good cause after Monday.
The Marshfield Clinic teamed up Furniture and Appliance Mart for their 14th annual 'Fore a Cure' golf outing.
The outing raises awareness and money for breast cancer detection equipment.
"Some of these golfers have been here 14 years straight. We have a great group and they love it, which is why they come back," said Fore a Cure Event Organizer Bill Fonti. "It's not only the cause and what it's for but it's also the outing itself and it's a great outing."
100% of the proceeds from the event go to support the Marshfield Clinic's breast cancer technology.
The clinic has the only mobile molecular breast imaging machine in the world.
The machine travels via truck around northern Wisconsin to five different Northwoods locations.
It's something that the clinic says is important for this area of Wisconsin.
"That unit can travel to our larger rural sites and take care of women, so we really pride ourselves on being able to take care to our patients, and make sure that all patients regardless of where they live has access to the most innovative care possible," Marshfield Clinic Chief Development Officer Teri Wilczek.
The golf outing has raised more $1.5 million since it began, and Monday's sunny conditions in Wausau drew more than 170 golfers to the course.
