Harold’s Fiasco Raises Over $20,000 Again For The Kids At St. Jude
Every year Harold's Fiasco takes place at the Pine Hill Golf Course in Carlton, Minnesota. They've been raising money for the kids at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and it's become a tradition for many people to golf in the scramble.
Golfing is only $20 per person for the 9-hole tournament, but they still have managed to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for St. Jude. They do this a bunch of different ways with donations going to raffle prizes and auction items.
Some of the prizes they have each year are big ticket items, like fishing trips, Vikings tickets, concert tickets, and more.
Some people come from a long way to participate each year. Like Bugy's Resort has been coming every year. Harold Ankrum met them at a fishing trip 40 years ago, and they've been coming since it started.
This group of people raises money with other big events during the year. Up next is Harold's Hog Roast which will take place in September. Each spring they also have a Flippin' Flapjack Fiasco in Carlton as well, raising thousands of additional dollars.
The total for this year's Harold's Fiasco Golf Tournament was over $20,000 with 245 golfers participating. If you haven't attended this golf tournament, make sure you mark your calendars for next year. It's the Saturday before Labor Day each year.
