This year it was held May 27th through June 1st at Wakonda Club in Des Moines.

The money raised will go to several children’s charities including Blank Children’s Hospital, United Way of Central Iowa, and Variety — The Children’s Charity.

In 2013 the golf tournament brought in just over $1 million.
