Safeway Classic money tops LPGA

    The Safeway Classic’s most successful year got this as an exclamation point: $1.1 million. That’s how much Portland’s LPGA golf tournament raised for local children’s charities in 2007, tournament organizers announced Wednesday.

    The figure is a record for the tournament, bettering the $1.01 million donated in 2006, and brought the total contributions in the event’s 36 years to more than $12 million.

    The figure also is the highest on the LPGA Tour for 2007, made even more impressive by the fact that the Safeway Classic is a three-round event. The 2007 LPGA Tour schedule had 31 official events, with 22 played over four rounds.
