A fundraiser on Saturday is raising money to help children fight cancer.

The Emma's Touch Foundation held their 4th annual golf tournament this morning at Briar Patch Golf Links. The foundation is named after Emma Vannatter who passed away from Leukemia in October 2008. Her parents use the foundation to raise money to help other children suffering from cancer.

"When Emma was diagnosed, we were immediately thrown into this world of cancer and realized there's not a lot of resources available for the kids and their families so that's one of the reasons we started after she passed was to help others" said her mom Karen.

Emma's parents are hoping to raise $25,000 from today's tournament.
