Welcome to the Benefit Golf Classic Website



Welcome to 2014 and our 18th Annual Benefit Golf Classic!

The 17th Annual Benefit Golf Classic supporting the Oregon Burn Center’s “Burn Education and Prevention Program” was held June 29th in Hood River, OR. A perfect 85* day greeted 128 golfers and 25 volunteers for the 2013 event, raising $70,135.68. This brings the total donated to the Oregon Burn Center to $951,149.88. New friendships and reacquainting with old made for an enjoyable time for all involved. The course was perfect, the food delicious, and the competition relaxed yet fierce. A wonderful day was had by all.

What We Do

As the only facility of its kind between Seattle and Sacramento, the Oregon Burn Center at Legacy Emanual Health Care Center treated over 400 burn survivors from across Oregon and Southwest Washington last year. A high percentage of patients cared for at the Burn Center are from our community and have been seriously burned on the job. Your contribution to the Burn Center will help the burn team prevent burns through education and outreach, as well as train medical staff in burn treatment to minimize injury for each burn survivor.

If we can save one person from the devastation of serious burns, we will have accomplished our goal. With your help, we can achieve so much more.

The 17th annual tournament will once again be held at Indian Creek Golf Course in Hood River, Oregon.

Thanks to the generosity we have received from you and our sponsors, the Benefit Golf Classic golf tournament raised has raised over $881,000.

Our goal once again this year is to raise another $50,000 which will support the critical work the Oregon Burn Center does.
