The Madison Edgewood girls golf team will play host to the eighth annual Crusade Fore a Cure event benefiting Susan G. Komen Wisconsin at Maple Bluff Country Club on Monday, August 28.

Twenty high school teams are set to be represented and participate in the event and have contributed toward fundraising.

More than $17,000 was raised at the event last year, which put the total to more than $55,000 since the tournament's inception.

Komen director Michelle Heitzinger will be in attendance as well as Andy Landenberger of the WPGA Jr. Foundation.

A program begins at 11:30 a.m., and will include guest speaker and Sauk Prairie tennis coach Katie Massey, who will share her story of being diagnosed with breast cancer at 29 years old.

There will be 21 different sponsors at the event, which is set for a shotgun start time of noon. Play should last about six hours.
