Why: Dating back to 1997, this golf event was originally organized as a benefit for cancer research in memory of a former Kimberly-Clark team member. In 2010, The Kimberly-Clark IT Charity Golf Classic transitioned its focus to benefit three local charities: Rawhide Boys Ranch, Children’s Hospital and Volunteer Center for East Central Wisconsin. Last year’s event raised a total of $130,702 that was equally divided between the recipients. Total proceeds raised since the Kimberly Clark IT Charity Golf Classic’s inception are more than $1,128,000!
