This tournament is always exciting, so it's a great venue for participating with Caddy For A Cure."
Russ Holden, Caddy For A Cure founder and veteran PGA TOUR caddie added, "It is such an honor to be offering this wonderful opportunity with Christina. We launched our program with the LPGA this year and had a great experience. Christina is known for bringing fans closer to the game by her animated and vocal style of play and flamboyant dress, so this will be a lot of fun." He continued, "Another thing that's great about this opportunity is that it is being coordinated with one of the tournament presenting media partners, Alpha Broadcasting, who owns 6 radio properties in Portland and a statewide network reaching 18 markets outside of Portland.
