In addition to cash and other in-kind prizes, first place winners of this Saturday’s golf tournament hosted by the NMC Foundation will also win roundtrip airfare tickets to Cairns, Manila, or Palau.

“I encourage all golfers to come out on Saturday to play for a very worthy cause,” said NMC Foundation President Ben Babauta. “We’re targeting 120 golfers, which will make for a great field in one of the finest tournaments of the season.”

“To assist in achieving this, the entrance fees have been set a very reasonable $85 for registrants,” Babauta added.

In addition to the roundtrip tickets to Manila, Palau, and Cairns, there are cash prizes for the top winners of the six flights: $500 for first place, $300 for second place, and $200 for third place.
