Due to the generosity of the many donors and hole sponsors, the participants went home with a lot of door prizes, including the grand prize drawing for  3 night stay at Las Vegas Sam’s Town Hotel along with a $700 travel certificate, won by Tommy Tokuda.

The biggest winners, however,  will be the  Kapaa High School Athletic Department  and the athletes  who will receive $10,000 tournament proceeds to purchase equipment.



The Kapaa High School Foundation would like to thank the many sponsors and donors who made the event successful.  We are blessed to have the support of so many businesses, volunteers, golfers, alumni, and other individuals from around the island who always give generously to make Kapaa High School a better place.
