DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (Valley News Live) - The Blaker Open Golf Tournament is happening at Lakeview Golf Course of the Detroit Lakes Country Club this weekend.

It’s a fun-filled day of golf to support Brent Blake. In August of 2020, Brent was heading to a golf tournament in Oakes, ND when he experienced blurred vision and slurred speech. He was transported to Fargo where medical teams found and removed a brain tumor the size of a golf ball. He was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma brain cancer.

Brent has a long road of treatment ahead, including travel to Mayo Clinic in Rochester. Family and friends are hosting this tournament to raise help and hope for Brent and his family. Cash/check gifts payable to “Brent Blake Benefit Fund” may be sent to Bell Bank at 3100 13th Ave. S., Fargo, ND 58103.
