On Monday, June 27, 2016 the 2nd Annual Dom Diddy Classic Golf Tournament and Auction will be held at Tokatee Golf Club. For the second year in a row, golfers and supporters will gather to raise money for the Dominic Fouts Memorial Cancer Fund. Following the success of the inaugural event, which raised more than $30,000 in net proceeds, this year’s tournament is expected to not only raise more money for the charity but also to surpass the overall experience all participants had the first year.
“Last year we had an unbelievable group of players, sponsors, and guests. Our field was sold out and we ran a waiting list for cancellations. I feel so grateful for the supportive community that is surrounding our organization,” said tournament director Suzanne Krueger. Suzanne is also the Executive Director for the Dominic Fouts Memorial Cancer Fund.
This year top sponsors include Tanner Goods, West Coast Paper Solutions, Bend Modern, Dan and Jeri Fouts and Rio Vista Chevrolet. Prizes and demo tent provided by Nike Golf.
The event will begin with a shotgun start at 12pm, followed by a BBQ dinner featuring awards, a live and silent auction and guest speakers.
Tokatee Golf Club, located in Blue River, Oregon, is set in the beautiful McKenzie River Valley with scenic views of the Three Sisters Mountains. It is consistently rated among the “Best Courses in Oregon” by Golf Digest.

“I really enjoyed the 2015 Dom Diddy Classic. Over the years I have had the opportunity to play in many golf tournaments, including two rounds with Tiger Woods at the Phoenix Open. I'd have to say that I enjoyed the Dom Diddy more than any of these other events. The casual atmosphere, genuinely helpful volunteers, good food and an exiting auction made my day!” - Bill Buehler
