BOISE -- The 2013 Albertson's Boise Open wrapped up Sunday and it will go down in the history books for the records it broke -- From size of the galleries to record-breaking scores to the amount of money raised for charity.

Announced after Sunday's final round, the open raised over $1.3 million dollars for dozens of local non-profits.

That brings the total amount raised in the tournament's history to over $15 million.

Also Sunday, Albertson's announced that the company has signed a new three-year contract extension for the popular event.

Kevin Tway won the Boise Open on Sunday for his first Web.com Tour title, beating Spencer Levin with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff.

The 25-year-old Tway, the son of Champions Tour player Bob Tway, closed with a 7-under 64 to match Levin at 23-under 261 at Hillcrest Country Club. Levin finished with a 63.
