Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan graciously thanks all generous sponsors, volunteers, participants, and community for the success of the 19th Annual Sophia Walk held on June 23, 2018.
Combined with the $10 registration fee, cash donations and raffle ticket sales, this year’s walk is donating $7,000 to Sophia Tenorio’s chosen beneficiary, the CHCC Volunteers Association.
Last June 23, over 550 participants gathered early in the morning at Fiesta Resort Beach to prepare for the 6-kilometer walk, which took the walkers/runners on a newly configured route to the Eloy S Inos Peace Park and back. Some of the participants donned creative and festive hats to join the inaugural “Best Hat” contest. Judges Sophia Tenorio and John Gonzales chose an artistically designed blue straw hat featuring the name “Sophia” in script with a latte stone, tropical elements, butterflies and orange flowers as the winning piece, created by Helen Olbes. Olbes’ efforts proved worthwhile as she won a “One Night Ocean View Room Stay and a Mai Teppanyaki Dinner for 2” valued at nearly $400.
The raffles also confirmed to be a popular event with gift certificates donated by various generous sponsors. The Top 4 prizes from Aqua Resort Club, Hyatt Regency Saipan, Docomo Pacific, and Fiesta Resort were valued at over $4,400. Lucky raffle ticket holder, Ron Ben, won the grand raffle prize, a “Two Night Executive Suite stay with lounge access” plus “Sunday Brunch for 4 with Pool Access at the Fiesta Resort.”
