Mike McCarthy visits American Family Children's Hospital


MADISON (WKOW) -- Kids at American Family Children's Hospital got a special visit on Sunday.

Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy met with every patient at the hospital, taking photos and signing autographs along the way. 

The McCarthy family is in town for the 4th annual McCarthy Dinner and Golf Tournament. The event raises money for the children's hospital.

"We put a lot of time and energy into and focus into these next two days, and frankly it's about raising funds, it's about raising funds to continue these types of projects and make sure that these children have what they need," says McCarthy.

Hospital officials say the McCarthys have raised $500,000 for the hospital over the past four years.
