— Lance Armstrong will appear at the charity golf outing in northeastern Wisconsin this summer.

The seven-time winner of the Tour de France and cancer survivor will appear at the U.S. Venture Open on Aug. 10.


The event will be held at the Oneida Golf & Country Club, North Shore Golf Club, Wander Springs, Mid Vallee and Fox Valley Golf Club all in northeast Wisconsin.


Last year's event raised more than $2.2 million when golf legends Arnold Palmer and Nancy Lopez attended. That was the most ever raised in the event's 25-year history.


All the money raised goes to Fox Cities area organizations that concentrate on poverty issues. The event started in 1986 and since then they've raised more than $12.6 million.
