The “HOPE for Children Charity Golf Classic” raised more than $145,000 for Providence Newberg Health Foundation’s HOPE for Children Fund during the July 21 tournament. The fund supports children with special medical needs in Yamhill and southwest Washington counties. The event was sponsored by Integra.

So far, more than $1.3 million has been raised for the HOPE fund.

“We’re very pleased to continue this valuable partnership, because it yields life-changing benefits for Yamhill County children with special needs,” said Diana Fisher, executive director of Providence Newberg Health Foundation.
