Volunteer Profile:
Jeff and Jennifer Richards
Jeff and Jennifer Richards have volunteered at the Boeing Classic every year since the PGA TOUR Champions event started 12 years ago. And they are already looking forward to volunteering in late August for the 13th time.

Currently, he is a course marshal and she is chair of events. They enjoy being involved with professional golf and contributing to a great cause. "It feels good to support research for people with autoimmune diseases. I've been so impressed with the major strides that Virginia Mason and Benaroya Research Institute have made during the 16 years my wife has worked at Virginia Mason," said Jeff. "We couldn't be prouder of what they do."

Soon their kids will be old enough to also volunteer at the Boeing Classic. "We want them to learn the meaning of giving, too." Jeff is a sales manager at Hamburg Süd and Jennifer is an executive director of Human Resources at Virginia Mason.
