2016 Toshiba Classic Raises National Awareness of Hoag’s Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center

Categories: Donor Spotlight

Golf fans on the course, and those watching from home, enjoyed another successful Toshiba Classic presented by Kingston Technology, which took place at the beautifully-renovated Newport Beach Country Club in October. Jay Haas was the Toshiba Classic champion for the second time in his career (2007, 2016). At the age of 62, Haas is now the second-oldest winner in PGA Champions Tour history and just the fourth player in Tour history with multiple victories in his 60s.

This year’s Toshiba Classic featured several special events during the week leading up to the tournament, including an informative conversation with Hoag Women’s Health Institute leaders. In partnership with Hoag and sponsors – Allergan, Cigna and RightSourcing – more than 250 women in attendance were led on a journey to better health and enhancing their well-being.

This was the nineteenth year that Hoag has been the event manager, host and primary beneficiary of this renowned event. Proceeds from the 2016 Toshiba Classic will benefit Hoag’s Mary & Dick Allen Diabetes Center, which provides comprehensive services for those with, or at risk for diabetes regardless of their ability to pay. Generating over $19 million since its inception, the Toshiba Classic has benefited health care in our community in ways that are incalculable.

Hoag Hospital Foundation expresses deep appreciation for Toshiba America, Inc. which extended its title sponsorship of the PGA TOUR Champions event that bears its name for three more years. Mark your calendar for the return of the Toshiba Classic in March 2018.

On behalf of golf lovers, local businesses and Orange County patients and families impacted by diabetes, the Foundation offers heartfelt thanks to all the tournament sponsors as well as more than 800 volunteers and thousands of fans who supported this year’s Toshiba Classic.
