As part of its commitment to supporting community events and projects, Bridge Capital has donated $5,000 to the 21st Annual Tournament of Champions

“The Tournament of Champions continues to be an integral source of funds for community projects that benefit all residents of the CNMI,” said Bridge Capital vice president and chief operating officer Jody Jordahl. “We are happy to be participating again this year as a sponsor for this great event and look forward to an exciting tournament on Aug. 6 and 7.”

This year’s Tournament of Champions will be played at the Laolao Bay Golf and Resort’s east and west courses. The two-day event is bigger and better than ever with exciting hole-in-one prizes and thousands of dollars in prizes. The TOC tournament fee is $200.

First place winners in the men’s Championship, A, B, C, Senior and Super Senior Flights will each receive $500 cash, while $400, $300, a GoPro Hero Camera, and $100 DFS gift certificate will go to the second to fifth finishers. The Ladies Low Gross champion will receive $500, $400 will go to the second placer, and $300 to the third. The Top 3 winners in the Ladies Low Net will receive trophies.

Meanwhile, hole-in-one prizes include a brand new 2016 Toyota Highlander donated by Atkins Kroll (Saipan), $10,000 cash prize donated by Pacifica Insurance, and one year free golf certificate from Laolao Bay Golf and Resort.

TOC, since its inception, 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 Palms 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.
