Century Hotel and Tribes Bar are jointly offering $20,000 for a hole-in-one at the 13th Annual HANMI Charity Golf Classic Tournament on June 7, 2014. The donation will be added to earlier hole-in-one sponsorship donations: $20,000 from Bridge Capital, $20,000 from Century Tours, and a 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander from Triple J Motors.
“The sponsorship support we are receiving for this year’s tournament is just tremendous, and we are very grateful to Century Tours and Tribes Bar, as well as all our other sponsors,” said Tournament Committee chair Steve Balakrishna.
Balakrishna said HANMI is also collaborating with Triple J Motors to offer a second vehicle as a hole-in-one prize.
“To keep things exciting, HANMI is also pleased to sponsor a 2014 Hyundai Elantra as a second vehicle on the course,” he said. “Between our hole-in-one prizes on the course and the raffle prizes we have to offer, we aim to make our players happy on June 7.”
This year’s tournament will be held at Mariana Resort Country Club and will be open to the first 144 paid registrants. Cash and numerous in-kind prizes await the winners, and proceeds of the tournament will be contributed to community charities.
Registration forms are now available at all island golf courses and HANMI hotels. Early bird tournament fee is $105 for payments received by 5pm, June 5. The fee increases to $125 after the early bird deadline. The fee includes green fee and the evening awards banquet at Pacific Islands Club Saipan on tournament day.
