Hello friends and past participants, it is with heavy hearts that we announce the recent passing of our long-time tournament director, Mike Long. Mike passed away on March 7th after a sudden diagnosis of acute leukemia. Mike was not only the events original director, but it was Mike, along with his wife of 40 years, Janice, who created the concept that is today known as the Youth Benefit Golf Tournament. Mike not only had a passion for the game of golf, but he was also deeply driven to give back in any way he could. Thus, the formation of the Youth Benefit Golf Tournament was founded back in 2000-2001, and continues to this day to be a source of giving and goodwill for the youth in the Santiam Canyon area. Mike will be sorely missed but his legacy will live on through the continued generosity of this annual tournament he so dearly loved. As a tribute for the dedication and hard work Mike has given towards this endeavor, we have decided to rename the tournament in his honor. From this time forward, the tournament will be called the Mike Long Youth Benefit Golf Tournament. We hope that you will continue to participate in this event, whether it be as a volunteer, a sponsor or donor, or playing in the tournament. We truly look forward to another great and prosperous year.

Thank you & God bless! - YBGT Staff...
