Save the date! This year’s Boeing Classic will be held from August 8-14, 2022. The annual golf tournament fuels groundbreaking immune system disease research at Benaroya Research Institute (BRI).
The tournament offers many exciting sponsorship opportunities: Sponsors can join the Korean Air Pro-Am, where they play the championship-caliber course at The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge with a PGA TOUR Champions Professional. They can sign up for Seahawks Rumble at the Ridge, where they golf with local sports heroes — and much more!
BRI supporters can also get involved through volunteering. Volunteers might score for a golf legend, drive a Major Champion to the airport, or walk 18 holes inside the ropes with the likes of golf pros Fred Couples, Bernhard Langer and Mark O'Meara. Volunteers play a key role in making the tournament possible, by helping offset the costs of putting on the tournaments and directing more funds to benefit BRI.
“My husband works for Boeing and I wanted to have a small part in helping Boeing give back to the community,” says Boeing Classic volunteer Kelly Laxton. “I immediately felt welcome and part of a positive, well-organized team. Now I’m looking forward to my next Boeing Classic and hope to be a part of this team for many years to come!”
The pandemic has made BRI’s mission — to predict, prevent, reverse and cure diseases of the immune system — more important than ever. Every hour volunteered and every dollar donated helps fuel their fight against diseases from multiple sclerosis, to Crohn’s disease to COVID-19.
“We are tremendously grateful for everyone who supports the tournament and for BRI’s generous community of donors,” says Vivian Gersuk, PhD, who manages BRI’s Genomics Core Laboratory and who often volunteers at the Boeing Classic. “You make it possible for us to work more effectively and efficiently and use the latest technology to advance research. Your support plays an invaluable role in generating answers that will really help people.”
