Boeing Classic FORE BRI: Join us from July 1-July 31 and together we will change lives!
The Boeing Classic is constantly striving to develop new opportunities to raise awareness of our tournament beneficiary, Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI). BRI is doing lifesaving work in the fight against autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, among others. We are proud to support their efforts helping the 1 in 20 Americans who suffer from these diseases in our community.
