The Rotary Club of Upcountry Maui and title sponsor Claudia Garcia, principle broker of Maui International Real Estate, will
host “Rotary Helping Women,”
the club’s second annual golf tournament fundraiser, on
Saturday, Sept. 12, at the
Pukalani Country Club.

Proceeds will support
Women Helping Women,
which offers emergency shelter
and programs for victims of
domestic violence.

“We are so grateful to Upcountry Rotary and their generosity in helping Women Helping Women raise funds for the shelter building maintenance fund!” said WHW Executive Director Stacey Moniz. “Over 300 women and children live in our shelter every year, and we provide everything they may need—from food to clothing, and advocacy and transportation. It’s so important that these families have a clean, safe and sound environment where they can heal. Thank you for helping us keep the shelter beautiful for our families.”

The tournament format is an 18-hole, four-person, shotgun-start, best-ball scramble. The fee for a single entry is $100 in advance; $120 at the door. A two-player team pays $200 in advance; $240 at the door.


The price of entry includes the green fee, shared cart, “swag” bag, continental breakfast, box lunch, snacks and an awards presentation.


The grand prize for the winning foursome is a round of golf, dinner and lodging in Kā‘anapali.

Golfers will also vie for a $10,000 cash prize for the hole-in-one contest, sponsored by Rodeo General Store in Makawao. Players may purchase Mulligan tickets at $5 a piece (limit two per player).

Early birds can also enter the putting contest from 6 to 7 a.m. for a shot at a great prize.


The tournament also includes a longest-drive contest and closest-to-the-pin contest—both with fabulous prizes.

Even the highest scoring team comes away with a prize!

For those who want to support the club’s efforts, but do not golf, ball drop tickets are on sale at five for $20 (tickets are sold in bundles of five only). Closest to the hole wins $1,000; second prize, $500, third prize, $250. Participants need not be present to win.

Check-in and breakfast begin at 6 a.m. The putting contest will be held from 6 to 7 a.m., with the tournament’s shotgun start beginning promptly at 7 a.m.

Lunch, the awards ceremony, door prize drawings and ball drop will immediately follow the tournament.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. One of the most valuable benefits of sponsorship is the significant amount of publicity you will receive, exposing you and your business as a true Women Helping Women supporter and environmental advocate. For maximum impact, become a sponsor today.

Monetary and prize donations are also welcome.
