Megan Snyder welcomed nearly 200 non-profit, youth organization, and athletic program representatives to the Oregon Convention Center on Thursday, September 12th to learn the details of the Nabisco TICKETS Fore CHARITY™ program associated with the recently announced WinCo Foods Portland Open. The new Portland professional men’s golf tournament is a key event on the PGA TOUR’s Web.com Tour schedule, and will be played at Pumpkin Ridge’s historic and exclusive Witch Hollow course August 18-24, 2014. WinCo Foods is the Title Sponsor and is proud to be bringing PGA TOUR golf back to Pumpkin Ridge for the first time in 20 years. The event will showcase some of the world’s finest golfers and the future stars of the PGA TOUR, with 25 PGA TOUR Cards up for grabs on Sunday at the conclusion of the final round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open, the final full-field regular season event of the 2014 Web.com Tour season.
WinCo Foods announced at a June 14th press conference 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.
