Come out to get an up close view of some of the greatest golfers in the game! Help out many local organizations, along with the Hawaii Island Food Bank while enjoying the beautiful Hualalai surroundings.
The latest Mitsubishi Electrical Championships is coming up January 17-19, 2019 at the gorgeous Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. Jerry Kelly defends in a field that includes Fred Couples, John Daly, Tom Watson, Olin Browne, Rocco Mediate and many more. PGA TOUR, and its tournaments, generated a whopping $190 million in charitable impact in 2018. Each PGA TOUR tournament is an opportunity to give back to your community in one of three ways - attending an event, volunteering, or donating money. Not-for-profit tournaments under the PGA TOUR umbrella donate their net proceeds to support local organizations, totaling close to $3 billion in donations to date. The impact these tournaments make throughout the year is possible thanks to the 100,000 volunteers annually who commit their time to ensure each event is a success.
And so far, over a million dollars has been raised for non profits and charities with funds going to the Rotary Club of Kona for their Rotary Club of Kona Community Foundation. The wonderful 400+ volunteer effort is under the Rotary Club of Kona, with Volunteer Co-Chairs Kris Hazard and Larry Webb grateful for every ones commitment. The Daniel Sayre Foundation and Big Island Junior Golf receive funds from the MEC as well. Just $45 for 3 day tournament pass. Juniors and military complementary.
There will be wonderful coverage of great golf and our beautiful Big Island and of course Four Seasons Resort Hualalai to viewers all over the world as Golf Channel will broadcast live all 3 days. For those of us lucky enough to be here I suggest go to Four Seasons watch the tournament live and then watch the replay at night on the Golf Channel. We hope you are watching and we send you aloha.
