The Tan Siu Lin Foundation has shown its continued commitment to the Joeten Daidai Foundation by donating $10,000 for the 2019 Joeten Memorial Golf Classic.
Joeten Daidai is holding the fundraising tournament on June 22 at the Laolao Bay Golf & Resort with proceeds from the event going to the foundation, which supports students going off-island to further their education and provides assistance to the community.
Joeten Memorial Golf Classic tournament director Peter “Dung” Tenorio, Joeten Daidai Foundation director Patty McDonald, and other officials of the group received the donation from TSL Foundation executive Merlie Tolentino and TanHoldings Corp. Community Relations director Carline Sablan last Friday at the TSL Plaza.
“The Joeten Daidai Foundation and the TSL Foundation and the Tan family have been partners not only in business, but also in projects that benefit our community, so their support to the Joeten Memorial Golf Classic is another testament to the two families’ strong ties. TanHoldings, like Joeten, is a company that is always ready to step up and help our community. We deeply appreciate their support and looking forward for our continued partnership,” Tenorio said.
TanHoldings Corp. chief executive officer Jerry Tan said the two foundations’ bond is strengthened by their common goal—to serve the community.
“The Tan Siu Lin Foundation shares Joeten Daidai’s mission to give back to the community. Both foundations also put their trust in education, as proven in the scholarships we grant to CNMI students, annually,” TanHoldings Corp. chief executive officer Jerry Tan said.
The Joeten Daidai Foundation gives scholarship to seven college students every year, according to McDonald. It also provides assistance to Karidat, the Commonwealth Cancer Association/Marianas March Against Cancer, and other groups.
“We recognize and commend the efforts being done by the Joeten Daidai Foundation to help send CNMI students to college and rally behind groups that are also doing outreach programs to the community. With this donation and support from other businesses, we wish for another successful Joeten Memorial Golf Classic,” Tolentino said.
The tournament will be held as part of the celebration of Joeten’s 70th anniversary. Players can enter in the Championship, A, B, C, Senior, and Ladies flights and the Top 3 finishers in each division will receive prizes. Five hole-in-one prizes will also be at stake in next month’s competition. (PR)
