School accepting sponsorships for annual golf benefit Sunday

Maui Preparatory Academy announces its fourth annual Tom Rosenquist Legacy Golf Tournament (aka “The TOM”) on Sunday at the Bay Golf Course at Kapalua.

Rosenquist, a founder and passionate supporter of Maui Prep and an avid golfer, passed away in September 2009. “The TOM” is one way that the school has chosen to honor his memory and his legacy every year, a release said.

Although registration is closed for teams, hole sponsorships ($350) and reception tickets ($50) are still available. All proceeds benefit the students of Maui Prep. Last year’s event raised more than $46,000.

Registration and catered lunch, donated by Cilantro’s Mexican Grill, begins at 11:30 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 1:30 p.m. This is a scramble format event.

An awards cocktail party, with entertainment by Da Braddahs, will follow play. Sponsors for the reception include The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, The Plantation House Restaurant, and Roy’s Kaanapali.

TaylorMade is the tournament sponsor. There will also be five hole-in-one contests to win a car, sponsored by Jim Falk’s Valley Isle Motors, and tournament caps donated by Honolua Surf Company. Prizes for all participants include restaurant certificates, overnight stays, golf on all islands and the mainland and golf products.
