Filipino Chamber Scholarship Golf Tournament Seeks Sponsors
The Maui Filipino Chamber Foundation will hold its Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament on Saturday, April 23, 2016, at The Dunes at Maui Lani.
The tournament provides funds for the Maui Filipino Chamber Foundation’s scholarship programs, said Kit Zulueta, president of the Maui Filipino Chamber Foundation.
Since 1995, the chamber has awarded scholarships to 123 high school seniors and four students at the Maui Culinary Academy.
“Thirteen students were awarded scholarships in 2015 through the foundation’s generous partners and because of the success of last year’s Scholarship Golf Tournament” said Bill Ruidas, golf tournament chairperson.
There are three different levels of sponsorship:
- Platinum: $1,100 for six golfers
- Gold: $500 for three golfers
- Team: $375 for three golfers
Tee sponsors are also available at $100.
Golfers will have an opportunity to win a hole-in-one prize at each of the par three holes sponsored by Valley Isle Motors. Participants also have the opportunity to win door prizes; the grand door prize is a $500 travel certificate.
The deadline for the three-person, full scramble tournament is March 31, 2016, but those who submit their paid application by March 15, 2016, will be eligible for an early-bird drawing for a flat screen television sponsored by Friends of Keith Regan.
