There is just something about a bagpiper serenading golfers to make an already special day that much more special!
The 2016 Dom Diddy Classic has come and gone. An overflow field gathered at Tokatee Golf Club. A couple golfers walked, four surfed the course on golf boards, and the rest rode comfortably in carts... well, except for a flat tire at the turn and a breakdown near the 11th, we all survived the warm day with smiles and laughs before celebrating the occasion over beers, margaritas, and pulled pork at the reception.
Speaker, and breast cancer survivor, Lindsay Bozanich, with her heartfelt recounting of meeting Nick Fouts in a bar on Halloween, brought tears to many in attendance. It was a truly moving moment not soon forgotten.
Dr. Andrew Weinberg, of the Robert W. Franz Cancer Research Center, Earle A. Chiles Research Institute at Providence shared breakthroughs and hope for the future of cancer treatments including immunotherapy.
The net funds raised is above $30,000+, with details still being determined at this early date (Gross raised is $44,175.00). We could not be more thankful for all who participated and contributed in time, effort, heavy lifting, financially, and sheer attendance.
Goals and expectations are high for 2017!!
The 1st Annual Dom Diddy Classic golf tournament and auction was a success! Total net funds raised $31,254.16. For a first time event, we sold out participation and have confirmed participants chomping at the bit for next year!
Tokatee Golf Club was the majestic setting where Dan King, PGA Golf Professional and course director, brought out an actual shotgun to start the scramble right!
A sold out field of golfers, filled with family and friends, old and new, reported this event to be among their favorites and look forward to returning! Thank you to the entire Dom Diddy Classic community!
The silent auction began online months prior to the event day, and participants were then able to make their bids before golfing, and then again after play at the BBQ reception. A surprise live auction took place and included signed footballs by NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts. Tickets to the Oregon/Oregon State Football Civil War game, golf packages at a number of premier golf venues in Oregon and California, NFL and MLB game tickets, a ski mountain season pass, and specialty item packages, as well as works of art, were among the auction items generously donated to the event.
We could not have been happier about the outcome and look forward to next year!
We had a successful live and silent auction at the second annual Dave and Dan Celebrity Golf Tournament. Sunday night, guests and celebrities were treated to an exuberant display of auctioneer prowess by none other than former San Diego Charger, and current radio announcer, Hank Bauer! Our goals of $10,000 were surpassed as we raised $16,200.00.
A portion of this total will be donated to the OHSU Patient Support Services Program to help alleviate some financial burden on patients and families battling cancer! We are excited to help the Knight Cancer Challenge set forth by Phil and Penny Knight, as they strive to reach the $500 million mark. As of August 19, 2014 its total raised is at $421,113,506. Please visit onedown.org to contribute!
The remaining portion will be donated to Portland’s Providence Cancer Center’s Financial Counseling Services. http://oregon.providence.org/our-services/c/cancer-financial-counseling/
Thank you for your support!! – Suzanne Krueger, Executive Director
Over $8,000 was raised at the Dave and Dan Celebrity Golf Tournament silent auction. A special evening welcoming celebrities and top sponsors was held at a family vineyard in Aloha, Oregon. This casual buffett dinner was host to a silent auction where sports memorabilia, golf items and packages, wine tour packages were auctions off for the benefit of the Dominic Fouts Memorial Cancer Fund. 100% of the bids were then donated to the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute's Patient Support Services Program in Dominic Fouts' name.
Thank you to Dave Wilcox, Dan Fouts, Tom Sargent, First Tech Federal Credit Union, and the Children's Miracle Network for this opportunity to introduce ourselves and take part in this event!
