Golf for Joy Tournament

Three Days of Golf to Benefit JoyRx

Thirteen years ago, our friend Gay Davis set out to combine two of his biggest passions: golf and helping kids. What started as a one-man golf marathon has grown to a world-class Pro-Am, dinner, and auction to benefit JoyRx, the mission delivery of Children’s Cancer Association.

The annual Golf for Joy Pro-Am Tournament presented by Northwestern Mutual will take place on Tuesday, June 27 to Wednesday, June 28 at the beautiful Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club outside of Portland, Oregon.
