As part of its commitment to higher education, Bank of Guam has generously donated $5,000 to the Northern Marianas College Foundation in support of their upcoming Golf Open on March 18 and 19.
"We are proud to support the Northern Marianas College Foundation and its mission to provide scholarships and educational opportunities to students in the CNMI,” said Marcie Tomokane, vice president/CNMI regional manager of Bank of Guam. “As a community bank, Bank of Guam is committed to investing in the growth and development of the communities we serve. We believe that supporting education is a crucial part of that commitment. We hope that our donation will help the NMC Foundation continue to provide students with the resources they need to succeed."
For the first time, NMC’s tournament will be a two-day event and will be held on the East and West Courses of the LaoLao Bay Golf and Resort. The tournament fee for the 2023 golf open is $250. First place winners in the Men's Championship, A, B, C, Senior, and Ladies Flights will each receive $500. Second place finishers will receive $300 and third place finishers will receive $200.
"We are incredibly grateful for the generous donation from Bank of Guam,” NMC Foundation Chairperson Ben Babauta said. “This contribution will have a significant impact on our mission to support the educational goals of Northern Marianas College students. Thank you to the Bank of Guam for their commitment to the success of our College.”
This year’s tournament will feature thousands of dollars in amazing hole-in-one prizes, such as a brand new 2023 Toyota 4Runner SR5 from Atkins Kroll Saipan, a brand new 2023 Hyundai IONIQ 5 SEL with Navigation and AWD and a brand new 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander from Triple J Motors, a brand new 2023 Nissan Rogue from Joeten Motoros, a $10,000 shopping spree at Top Shelf Wine and Spirits, $10,000 from Ambyth Shipping and Seafix Inc., $5,000 from Pacifica Insurance, $3,000 from McDonald’s of Saipan, and a YETI cooler from Boarderline.
The tournament, which is the signature event of the NMC Foundation, aims to raise funds for the College for its rebuilding and reconstruction efforts. Despite the devastation and destruction of Super Typhoon Soudelor and Yutu, the College has been aggressively seeking funds from all available sources to rebuild classrooms, offices, labs, and workforce spaces for the CNMI community. The Foundation is seeking the CNMI private sector’s support through fundraising events like the golf tournament.
