Nā Hale O Maui Inaugural Charity Golf Tournament
Nonprofit Nā Hale O Maui will host its inaugural charity golf tournament on Sunday, July 16 at the Mākena Golf & Beach Club. A $10,000 prize is being offered for a hole-in-one on Hole 15.
The event costs $250 per individual player and includes a full breakfast, buffet luncheon and entry in Hole-In-One and Closest-to-the-Pin contest throughout the course. The tournament begins at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start. Breakfast will be served at 7:30 a.m. and the club’s driving range will also be open at 7:30 a.m.
Proceeds from the event will support the build-out of new three and four-bedroom homes in Kahoma, Lahaina. The homes will benefit low and moderate-income island families with a priority for those who work and/or live in Lahaina.
“We invite you to join us for a fantastic morning of premier golf at the Mākena Golf & Beach Club to support providing truly affordable housing in perpetuity for Maui families,” said NHOM President Michael Trotto. “Your participation will help us change the lives of 12 Maui families that work or live in West Maui.”
NHOM is a nonprofit 501(c) 3, created in August 2006, whose mission is to secure and preserve a permanent supply of affordable housing alternatives for low and moderate- income households in Maui County.
The organization acquires and rehabilitates abandoned and/or foreclosed homes on Maui, and sells the homes to income-qualified island families. Over the past ten years, NHOM has helped 33 Maui families secure homes. The nonprofit also created a matching down-payment assistance grant, based on need, of up to $10,000 per NHOM home.
