"The Barracuda Championship is proud to give back and support the community in every way possible," said John Sande III, Reno-Tahoe Open Foundation chairman "And as we set our goals even higher for 2015, we look to the entire community to support the tournament through corporate sponsorships, ticket sales and word of mouth support. It's a win-win for the entire community when we're able to provide more support for area non-profits."
