YLinks: Business Leaders Golf For Good

The YMCA Business Leaders Golf for Good Tournament, while linking you to the greater Portland business community, will provide youth and families the assistance needed to experience the supportive community the Y offers in camps, youth sports, early childhood development, after school enrichment, teen centers and more. And on top of all of that, we’re sure you’ll have a good time.

2019 Tournament

Over 220 golfers came out to enjoy the day at beautiful Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club. Your participation directly supports kids in our community by funding our financial assistance program—which provides youth of all ages access to affordable, quality programs. Through generous donations we were able to raise more than $85,000. We are also thankful to our keynote speaker, Pee Wee Harrison, for sharing his story about the power of a messenger.
