Virginia Mason’s Partner Turns 100 – Congratulations to Boeing
The Boeing Company is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. That’s cause for celebration for the many organizations benefiting from Boeing’s philanthropy as a company and through its employees.
Boeing Classic Golf Tournament
Virginia Mason and Boeing enjoy a long history of partnership in supporting the community. One effort is working together to produce the Boeing Classic PGA TOUR Champions Golf Tournament, now in its 12th year. Over the years, the event has benefited Virginia Mason Medical Center, Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason and other local charities.
“The award-winning Boeing Classic is a world-class event in our own backyard,” says President and CEO, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Raymond Conner. “The PGA TOUR Champions showcases some of the sport’s top talent and is an annual highlight for enthusiastic fans.”
Benefiting Health and Research
“The Boeing Company is the title sponsor for the tournament,” says Executive Director, Boeing Classic Tournament, Michelle DeLancy. “Boeing’s partnership and support has allowed the tournament to thrive and grow.”
Since its inception in 2005, the Boeing Classic has raised $6 million to support health and medical research programs. Hundreds of Boeing employees also serve as volunteers for the event.
“Part of Boeing’s DNA is not just designing and building incredible airplanes, but giving back to the communities where our employees live and work,” says Conner. “The Boeing Classic is part of that effort.”
