About the Event
The Youth Benefit Golf Tournament is an annual charity golf event held in the great state of Oregon. The tournament is scheduled on the first Saturday of every August. We have been in existence since 2001 and have had minimal to good success in gathering charitable funds for Santiam Canyon youth projects, grants and scholarships.
The grants and scholarship funds go to students mainly residing in the Santiam Canyon area. The Santiam canyon is a somewhat financially depressed area so it has been very challenging to generate the support that we need to disperse grant and scholarship funds to all who apply. We feel that we must do better but it is very tough when competing with the higher end golfing establishments in the surrounding area. We would also like to do better with our prize packages so that our participants can be well rewarded after giving of their time, effort and dollars to this worthy event.
We will be accepting donations year-round but would like to receive all Grant and Scholarship donations by March 15th, 2018. Tournament donations should be received at least 1 week prior to event date, which is August 4th, 2018.
Our family and friends truly love the game of golf and we absolutely love the great Northwest. We truly appreciate all who consider giving their financial support to this wonderful project. Thanks, in advance for your time and consideration!
