BOISE -- Unhealthy air quality in the Sun Valley area has forced the cancellation of the annual Killebrew-Thompson Memorial Golf Tournament.

For the past four decades this event in Sun Valley has raised over $13 million for cancer treatment and research with the Mountain States Tumor Institute in Boise as one of its primary recipients.

Huey Lewis and The News also canceled his opening night concert on Wednesday.

It's the first time in the 36-year history of this event they have been forced to cancel due to fire.
