    “Volunteers are the foundation of what makes this event so successful,” said Tom Maletis, President of Tournament Golf Foundation, the organizers of the event.  “They help us to raise needed funds for local children’s charities in Oregon, and we truly feel that they have an exciting and rewarding experience during this great event.”

    Last year the Safeway Classic donated $1,010,000 to local charities through the Safeway Foundation.  To date the event has given over $11 million to local organizations in need; $7 million have been generated in the ten years that Safeway has been the title sponsor.
