ELTOPIA, Wash. -  The nonprofit Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation is closing next month.

The foundation's director, Alice Didier, tells the Tri-City Herald that the organization couldn't find enough people willing to serve in key positions. The foundation is based in the small town of Eltopia near the Tri-Cities.

Her son, Clint Didier, unsuccessfully ran this year for the U.S. Senate in Washington. He's helped with the nonprofit's golf fundraisers.

Alice Didier says it also is getting difficult to raise money because of competition from other charity golf tournaments.

She says the organization is distributing the $67,500 it raised during its tournament in June for children's cancer care and research.
