Ambyth Shipping Micronesia and Seafix Inc. announced that they will be offering a $10,000 hole-in-one cash prize for the Northern Marianas College Foundation’s upcoming golf open on March 18 and 19, 2023.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to contribute to an amazing cause,” Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Ambyth Shipping and Seafix Inc. Andrew J. Miller said. “We hope that this contribution will make a positive impact on the lives of NMC students and the community, and we look forward to seeing the Foundation's continued success with the upcoming tournament.”
For the first time, NMC’s tournament will be a two-day event and will be held on March 18 and 19, 2023, 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.
“The $10,000 hole-in-one prize from Ambyth and Seafix helps build the anticipation and excitement for our upcoming tournament,” NMC Foundation Chairperson Ben Babauta said. “We are extremely grateful to the two companies for their support of NMC.”
This year’s tournament will feature thousands of dollars in amazing hole-in-one prizes, such as a $10,000 shopping spree at Top Shelf Wine and Spirits, $5,000 from Pacifica Insurance, $5,000 from McDonald’s of Saipan, a YETI cooler from Boarderline, a brand new 2023 Toyota 4Runner SR5 from Atkins Kroll Saipan, and vehicles from Triple J Motors and Joeten Motors.
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.
