WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. -

The 6th Annual Andy North and Friends event was held in Wisconsin Dells Sunday and Monday. A plethora of sports stars came together to raise $920,000 for the Carbone Cancer Center. 

The event was headlined by Annika Sorenstam, Tom Watson, and Aaron Rodgers. It included a dinner Sunday night at the Kalahari Resort, where silent auction items included a trip to this year's Ryder Cup in Scotland, a trip to Cooperstown with Baseball Hall of Famer Robin Yount, among other items. 

Monday, guests enjoyed breakfast at Trappers Turn and a round of golf on the course designed by North. 

All in all, the event raised $920,000 for the Carbone Cancer Center. That generosity continues to please North. 

"To be able to raise the kind of dollars we've been able to raise every single year; and the friends that keep coming back every single year, I'm blown away every time we do one of these with the generosity of our community."

North is a cancer survivor. 

He was diagnosed in 1991 and underwent five surgeries to remove skin cancer from his face.
