This year marks the 23rd annual Pundy Yokouchi Memorial Golf Tournament to benefit the arts and educational programs of Maui Arts & Cultural Center.
The event begins with a sponsors reception on Friday, April 15th, and tee-off set for Saturday, April 16, at the Dunes Maui Lani golf course in Kahului.
Entry fees are: $150 per person and $550 per hole sponsorship for two players, plus applicable fees.
The popular tournament rose a record $45,000 last year, despite being the first year without a title sponsor. Funds raised from entry fees support a wide range of MACC programs, including field trips for students, workshops for teachers, and performances for seniors.
The tournament was named in memory of Pundy Yokouchi, the founding chairman of the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. Over 12 years, it has raised over a half a million dollars for the MACC, and has become a vital part of the center’s fundraising efforts.
