When Judd Silverman first had the idea of

bringing a professional golf tournament to

Toledo, one of his main goals was to help area

charities. To that end, the Jamie Farr Toledo

Classic and now the Marathon Classic has

donated a total of $9.2 million to 152 area

organizations dedicated to helping children.

In 2015 alone, $582,000 was generated and

distributed to 19 area organizations. Silverman

has set an aggressive goal to reach the $10

million total mark in 2016.

The LPGATour and the Marathon Classic always

strive to make the tournament an enjoyable

adventure for children. Tour players seek out

features fun activities for children during the

week of the tournament at Highland Meadows.

A Scavenger Hunt will be ongoing all four days of

the tournament. Team mascots from the Walleye,
