Since its inception, TOC has given over $700,000 to the Saipan Beautification Fund which has gone directly to the improvements of the tree-lined traffic medians that stretch from Garapan to the former Palm Resort Saipan, as well as the revitalization of the Garapan special district. In addition, TOC also contributed funds for the Paseo de Marianas, the lighting of the Saipan Beach Pathway, and most recently the beautification of the Port to Park pathway.
“We are proud of our continued commitment to enhance the beauty of Saipan for our tourists and residents,” Babauta said. “It is the generous support of our golfers, sponsors and committee members that make this event possible.”
