Rotary Helping Women golf fundraiser set
The Rotary Club of Upcountry Maui (RCUM) and title sponsor American Savings Bank will host Rotary Helping Women, the club’s seventh annual golf tournament fundraiser, on Sept. 10 at Pukalani Country Club.
Proceeds from the event will support Women Helping Women (WHW), which offers emergency shelter and programs for victims of domestic violence, and The Maui Farm, which provides safe transitional housing and farm-based, family-centered programs.
The tournament format is an 18-hole, four-person, shotgun start, best-ball scramble. The fee is $125 for a single entry and $250 for a two-player team.
The entry fee includes the greens fee, a shared cart, a “swag bag,” a continental breakfast package, a hot bento box lunch, snacks, water, soda, a door prize drawing ticket and an awards presentation.
For those who want to support the club’s efforts but do not golf, ball drop tickets are five for $20 (tickets are sold in bundles of five only). The “owner” of the ball closest to the hole wins $1,000; second prize, $500; third prize, $250. Participants need not be present to win.
