Last years, the Foundation gave $84,000 Childrens’ Charities during a time of need. From the inception of The Chat, we have given $620,000 to charity through this golf tournament and private donations. This has been made possible through your generous donation and participation. We are grateful for your support.
Should you have any questions regarding the event, please contact Ed O'Mara, Tournament Director. Ed may be contacted at: (503) 655-3441 or email@example.com
Thank you for your support of the Foundation and the childrens’ charities. I look forward to seeing you at the 10th Annual Fireside Chat!
