FRANKLIN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Golfers in southeast Wisconsin braved the heat and hit the links for a good cause Monday, Aug. 24. 

The 44th annual MACC Fund Open looked a little different as organizers took new precautions against Coronavirus. 

The outing happened at Tuckaway Country Club in Franklin. Proceeds helped benefit the MACC Fund's mission of fighting childhood cancer and blood disorders. 

With so many fundraisers being canceled during the pandemic, the event took on added importance this year. 

"Golf events are different for us as far as... you don't come and hangout and socialize, you're here an hour before, there's no sit down dinners, there's no programs. But people still come out and help the MACC Fund and want to raise money," said President and CEO of the MACC Fund, Becky Pinter. 

Instead of sit-down dinners, box lunches were provided for golfers. Social distancing was also enforced, and masks were required inside the clubhouse and locker rooms.
