The Sagebrush Golf Classic tried a new fundraising formula this year and it’s not clear whether they'll continue with it. Sagebrush events didn't make any money this year and so Deschutes Brewery stepped in and donated $30,000 to be split up among the 100 non-profits.  Gary Fish of Deschutes Brewery headed up Sagebrush this year. “We're going through a lot of analysis and we learned an awful lot this year and we learned the new concept and there are certainly things we could have done better. But at the same time we want to know if the paradigm has shifted away from events as a source of revenue.” The nearly 100 non-profits did raise three quarters of a million dollars this year, but poor weather and a tough economic climate resulted in Sagebrush events failing to make money this year.  So there were no matching funds for the nonprofits, until Deschutes Brewery donated them.
