For the past 19 years, the tournament has been played in memory of Dick Marsel. He was the beloved plant manager of Quad Graphics in Saratoga Springs, until he passed from lung cancer in 2001. Golfing in his memory is a tradition at Quad.

Through the years, the Dick Marsel Memorial Classic has raised more than $275,000 for the American Cancer Society.
