Proceeds from the 2014 Toshiba Classic benefited the
Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center
for the fourth consecutive year and raised just over $1 million for the
Allen Diabetes Center. The tournament has generated nearly $17 million
to benefit Hoag throughout its twenty year history.
This year’s Toshiba Classic was held March 10-16, 2014. The Toshiba
Classic is the largest and most exciting annual event in Orange County.
150 sponsors, 1,200 volunteers and 85,000 spectators support the Toshiba
Classic each year, providing the means for a tournament that produces
record earnings for charity, and an event that has become a tradition
in the Orange County community.
The American Diabetes Association estimates that nearly 26 million Americans
live with diabetes and more than 79 million Americans are at increased
risk for diabetes. Recognizing that Orange County is deeply affected by
this chronic disease, The Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center is dedicated
to making a positive difference in the lives of people with diabetes through
its clinical, educational and support services.
Innovative and customized programs at the Allen Diabetes Center include “
;” a program tailored for women who have diabetes while pregnant;
pediatric diabetes services
, a multicultural program and the
Herbert Family Program for Young Adults with Type 1 Diabetes
. Additionally, the Allen Diabetes Center is committed to community outreach
and programs that provide care to underserved populations.
It is because of the generosity and support of the community and organizations
like Toshiba that the Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center is able to
provide comprehensive services for those with, or at risk for diabetes
regardless of their ability to pay.
Much more than a first class golf tournament, the Toshiba Classic has
evolved as a platform for Toshiba to support healthcare, children and
education in our community. In addition to the millions of dollars raised
for Hoag, Toshiba has used the Toshiba Classic venue to award scholarships
to deserving students and laptops to local schools in the last 12 years.
For Toshiba, giving back to the community in which its employees live
and work is fundamentally important. That idea was a key driver in the
company’s decision in 1994 to sponsor the Toshiba Classic. In the
ensuring years, company leadership and employees alike have taken great
pride in the fact that the Toshiba Classic is the most charitable event
on the PGA Champion’s Tour.
