As part of its commitment to support local community groups and volunteer-driven projects, Bridge Capital, LLC has donated $5,000 to the organizers of the 22nd Governor’s Tournament of Champions, which will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28, 2017.

“For more than 20 years, the Governor’s Tournament of Champions has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for beautification and improvement projects that enhance the CNMI’s reputation as a prime tourist destination,” said Joe Guerrero, Bridge Capital Business Development manager. “We are excited to be a part of this year’s tournament and wish all the players luck!”

“Bridge Capital has been a strong community partner for many years, and we are extremely grateful for the company’s generous contribution,” said Ben Babauta, tournament director. “The company’s donation will go a long way to ensure that this year’s tournament is the most successful one to date.”

The 22nd Governor’s Tournament of Champions will be played at the LaoLao Bay Golf and Resort’s east and west courses on May 27 and 28. The two-day event is bigger and better than ever with exciting hole-in-one prizes and the chance to win thousands of dollars in possible prizes. The TOC tournament fee is $200.

Winners in the Men’s Championship, A, B, C, Senior and Super Senior flights will each receive $500, $400, $300, a digital camera, and $100 DFS gift certificate for the first to fifth place, respectively. The Ladies Low Gross winners will receive $500, $400, and $300 for first to third place, respectively. The first, second, and third place winners of the Ladies Low Net will each receive a trophy.

Since its inception, TOC has turned over more than $800,000 to the Saipan Beautification Fund, which has gone to improvements like the tree-lined traffic medians that stretch from Garapan to Kensington Hotel, as well as the revitalization of the Garapan special district. In addition, the TOC also contributed funds for the Paseo de Marianas, the lighting of the Saipan Beach Pathway, and the beautification of the Port to Park pathway.
