Tower Theatre Salutes Jeld-Wen Tradition with Comedy Classic "Caddyshack"

(BEND, OR., July 23, 2010):  The Executive Director of the Tower Theatre Foundation, Ray Solley, announced the Tower Theatre in downtown Bend will again this summer present a special screening of the cult golf favorite “Caddyshack” to tie into the final rounds of the Jeld-Wen Tradition Champions Tour. The hole-in-one comedy classic “Caddyshack” (1980; rated R) tees off Saturday night, August 21, as Jeld-Wen Tradition Week concludes in Central Oregon. It’s the snobs (Chevy Chase) against the slobs (Bill Murray). Proceeds will help fund increased educational and family programming by the local nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation.


“The Jeld-Wen Tradition is a major asset to Central Oregon,” said Solley. “Since golf fans of all ages are watching the PGA pros at Crosswater, we wanted to give them a chance to watch the painfully hilarious amateurs at Bushwood Country Club, too!”


The Tower is also part of Jeld-Wen’s “Tickets for Charity” initiative. When patrons purchase one day or weeklong tournament passes at the Tower box office, or through TowerTheatre.org, 100% of the ticket price will be returned to the Tower Foundation to help fund the theatre’s educational and community outreach programs for children and families. Projects benefitting include “A Christmas Carol,” produced by the nonprofit children’s theatre company B.E.A.T.


The Tower Theatre Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to maintaining and operating the historic theatre and making the best in performing arts available and accessible to all citizens of Central Oregon. Program information, group discounts, gift certificates and individual tickets are available at the Tower Theatre box office, or at www.towertheatre.org.
