Final sponsors are jumping onboard and slots are being filled for the 17th Annual HANMI Charity Golf Classic Tournament that will be held tomorrow on the east course of the Laolao Bay Golf & Resort.
Asiana Airlines has donated a roundtrip ticket to anywhere the airlines flies except the U.S., while Saipan Travel Inc. has donated a first class round trip ticket between Saipan and Shanghai or Guangzhou. Both tickets will be offered as hole-in-one prizes on the course and, if not won, will be raffled off at the evening’s banquet.
“I am honored to sponsor the 17th HANMI Golf Tournament,” said Asiana Airlines Saipan Regional Office manager Ahn Min Kyoung. “Asiana Airlines has 83 aircraft, operating in 63 cities and 76 routes in 21 countries around the world. We hope you will travel comfortably and safely in one of 63 cities (except the U.S.) you want.”
Also this week, exclusive hole sponsors IT&E donated $1,200 cash and Island Training Solutions donated $600 cash, which HANMI will include in its fund for charitable donations in the year ahead. In the past, HANMI has supported organizations and activities, including Saipan Senior Advisory Council, Northern Marianas Trades Institute, Marianas Tourism Education Council, animal welfare groups, law enforcement programs, and more.
The tournament is also offering several other hole-in-prizes, including $5,000 cash sponsored by Pacifica Insurance, $20,000 cash from LT Travel and the Tinian Mayor’s Office, $20,000 cash sponsored by Century Tours, $5,000 cash sponsored by Century Insurance, $2,500 cash sponsored by Traders Insurance, a 2018 Toyota C-HR from Atkins Kroll (Saipan), and a 2018 Mazda CX-5 GT from Triple J Motors.
“The support of our many, many sponsors has been truly tremendous this year, and we thank them for their help in making this tournament great for the players and our fundraising efforts,” said tournament committee chair Ty Pauling. “The HANMI tournament has a track record of selling out every year, so we encourage anyone interested in participating to register at LaoLao today to secure their slot.”
