The Saipan Chamber of Commerce hopes to raise $15,000 for its scholarship fund in next month’s Saipan Chamber of Commerce/Steven Brownstein Golf Classic at Laolao Bay Golf & Resort.
Chamber executive director Richard Pierce said just this last June the business organization awarded $12,000 in college scholarship funds to six Saipan high school students attending colleges this year.
The two-man best ball scramble format will have three categories of play—men’s low gross, men’s low net (double peoria), and women’s low net (double peoria).
Winners in all three categories will take home $1,000 each. Second and third place finishers will be awarded $500 and $300 each, respectively.
There will be four hole-in-one prizes with automobiles and cash awards, among them a 2014 Hyundai Elantra generously put up by Triple J Motors. There will also be airline tickets for closest-to-the-pin contests.
In addition there will also be tons of raffle prizes made up Duty Free Shoppers Saipan luxury bags, Delta Air Line tickets, hotel rooms, $1,000 fishing reels, dinners, electronics, smart phones, among others.
Pierce estimates that all prizes for the Oct. 5 golf-fest totals $99,000. He also expects a full house with 144 golfers anticipated to take part in the tourney.
This year’s Chamber fundraiser golf tournament has been rechristened 2013 Saipan Chamber of Commerce/Steven Brownstein Golf Classic in honor of Brownstein who recently donated $5,000 to the business organization.
Brownstein owns and operates Straight Line International/The HR Screener as The Background Investigator and has been a member of the Chamber since 2005
The tournament fees will be $99.95 for individual players, and registration forms will be available soon at the Chamber offices in Garapan, or by calling Emi Agulto at 233-7150, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
