New Portland event a hit with charity

Updated: October 1, 2013

The WinCo Foods Portland Open, a event at Pumpkin Ridge set for 2014, is already making some noise.

Tournament Executive Director Jeff Sanders and WinCo Foods NW Division V.P. Megan Snyder welcomed nearly 200 non-profit, youth organization, and athletic program representatives to learn the details of the Nabisco Tickets Fore Charity program associated with the new tournament.

The new Portland professional men’s golf tournament will be played at Pumpkin Ridge’s Witch Hollow course August 18-24, 2014.

WinCo Foods announced earlier that it will donate 100% of all tickets to charities and youth organizations to sell and keep 100% of the revenue for their organizations in Oregon and Southwest Washington through the Nabisco Tickets Fore Charity program.

The total amount generated from Tickets For Charity in 16 Tour events, all produced by Jeff Sanders Promotions across America, is nearly $7.5 Million. Charities and youth organizations sold $1,035,000 worth of tickets, and kept 100% of the revenue, at a 2013 Tour event in Boise.
