McDonald’s Saipan yesterday sponsored a hole-in-one prize for the upcoming annual golf tournament of the Saipan Chamber of Commerce.
The local fastfood franchisee turned over $1,000 yesterday at their Beach Road branch to the Saipan Chamber of Commerce 2019 Golf Tournament, which raises funds for their annual operations.
SCC noted that McDonald’s Saipan is also sponsoring a hole-in-one prize for hole No. 13 at the Laolao Bay Golf & Resort on Saturday, March 30, 2019.
According to owner Marcia Ayuyu, McDonald’s Saipan has always supported the golf tournament.
“We are happy to donate this,” she said. “I urge the community to come out and join the tournament. It’s going to be fun.”
McDonald’s marketing manager Ana Olaes noted that the fastfood chain supports what SCC plans to use the money for.
“McDonalds Saipan is very much into family values, anything that would help [locally],” she said. “Whether it’s another company or a group, McDonald’s is always there.”
SCC board vice chair Joe Guerrero received the McDonald’s donation on behalf of the Chamber. “Without the support of companies such as McDonald’s Saipan, we will not be able to fulfill our mission to help businesses grow and succeed in the CNMI,” he said.
The proceeds of the tournament, according to Guerrero, help fund the SCC operations and programs such as college scholarships, training initiatives for new businesses owners, and improving the SCC’s network in the community.
