As part of its commitment to higher education, Bank of Guam recently donated $5,000 to the Northern Marianas College. The donation was made as part of the NMC 2022 Golf Open which is scheduled for Saturday, March 19, 2022.
“We are proud to help the Northern Marianas College further its mission of helping CNMI residents improve their quality of life through educational advancement and professional development,” said Marcie Tomokane, vice president/CNMI regional manager of Bank of Guam.
Proceeds from this year’s tournament will go to helping the college fund critical expenses, including the recovery of NMC’s facilities, equipment, supplies, and other items destroyed by the Super Typhoon Yutu. The college has already completed the demolition of the damaged buildings, and is now moving forward with the next step of the construction of new facilities.
“Bank of Guam’s generosity has enabled many organizations in the CNMI, including the Northern Marianas College, to carry out important goals and objectives,” NMC president Galvin Deleon Guerrero, EdD, said. “We are thankful for the company’s long standing support.”
NMC’s Golf Open will be held on the east course of the Saipan LaoLao Bay Golf and Resort. Showtime is at 6am, and the shotgun start will be at 7am. The tournament will follow a medal play format.
First place winners in the men’s Championship, A, B, C, Senior, and Ladies Flights (low gross and low net) will each receive $500, while $300 and $200 will go to the second and third place finishers, respectively. Hole-in-one prizes also include a brand new 2022 Civic Sport Hatchback from Joeten Motors, a brand new 2022 Hyundai Kona N-Line from Triple J Motors, a brand new 2022 Toyota Camry from Atkins Kroll Saipan, and $5,000 from McDonald’s.
The tournament will also feature many other items such as raffle prizes like smartphones, hotel stays, meals, and much more.
