About Us


Our History

Created in 2011, Northwest Golfers for Warriors is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, staffed 100% by volunteers. Under the leadership of PGA Professional Christopher A. Runyan, the tournament now known as the Dan Kleckner Golf Classic was born the same year. Celebrating its 12th anniversary in 2023, Northwest Golfers for Warriors has donated over $750,000 to non-profit veterans organizations across the Inland Northwest through the Dan Kleckner Golf Classic, silent and live banquet auctions, and annual Q6 News telethon.

Board of Directors

Northwest Golfers for Warriors is fully-staffed by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of veterans and military spouses, allowing all tournament proceeds to go directly to Inland Northwest non-profit veterans organizations, rather than salaries.
