For the thirteenth consecutive year, Sause Bros. Ocean Towing Company joined fellow marine transportation companies Foss Maritime Company and Harley Marine Services in hosting a golf tournament to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Care Team and Benaroya Diabetes Center at Virginia Mason and the Boys & Girls Club of Southwestern Oregon.

This year’s event was the most successful to date for the non-profit beneficiaries.  The money raised at this year’s tournament will be used to support research and treatment for the Pancreatic Cancer Care Team and Benaroya Diabetes Center at Virginia Mason and to support programming at the Boys & Girls Club in Coos Bay. Since its inception in 2000, the event has netted over $2 million for these deserving charities.  “Sause Bros. is proud to have established a tradition of giving back to our communities in a real, tangible way,” said Dick Lauer, Manager, Bulk Products at Sause Bros. “We are looking forward to working with Foss & Harley to raise even more money for these important organizations next year.” Mr. Lauer was joined by Jeff Horst of Foss Maritime and Keith Barnes of Harley Marine in presenting the check to the organizations.  The 264 participants at the sold-out event enjoyed a day of competitive golfing, dinner and evening festivities, and a live auction led by Dick Foley of Kingston Trio fame.  To learn more about Boys & Girls Club programs visit the Club’s website at or call the Club office (541) 267-3635.
