This years YV Oregon Cup was a huge success, said Lynne Saxton, executive director of Youth Villages Oregon. We had a great turnout, and were very thankful for the many golfers, golf clubs, companies and foundations that have supported Youth Villages Oregon over the past 10 years. Their support allows us to continue to help some of Oregons most vulnerable children and families live successfully.
