Roil Soil fundraising golf tournament set for July 28

ROIL Soil Clothing will hold its first fundraising golf tournament on July 28, Sunday, at Laolao Bay Golf & Resort. Check-in time is 11:30 a.m. and the event starts at 12:30 p.m.

Participant can sign up at Tribe Marianas until Saturday, July 20.

Roil Soil Clothing founder Shayne Villanueva said the event’s proceeds will benefit the NMI Crime Stoppers and the Micronesia Islands Nature Alliance.

Three major sponsors offer hole-in-one prizes: Triple J Motors will give away a brand new 2019 Hyundai Kona; Island Training Solutions, $5,000; and Pacifica Insurance and Underwriters, $5,000.

For its part, All-Star Sporting Goods will be giving away YETI coolers and several other products as well.

“This isn’t going to be your normal tournament because we have lots of games and prizes,” Villanueva said. “We may have like an inflatable dollhouse or playhouse in the middle of the field. We plan on having games and lots of holes.”

He said to attract more players, they want the tournament to be fun, especially for those who don’t play golf.

“We also want to provide a challenge and something new for people who are very serious about golf,” he added.

A member of the Marianas Young Professionals, Villanueva said Roil Soil Clothing promotes local culture and helps charitable institutions.

The golf tournament, he added, was originally a private event for his birthday celebration, but “lots of people wanted to play so we decided to open it up to the public.”

He added, “We’re not making any money on this tournament. The money will be donated.”

This year’s platinum sponsors are Pacifica Insurance Underwriter Inc., Island Training Solutions, Triple J Motors, All-Star Sporting Goods, Marianas Geotech Services, and Saipan Brewing Company.

The gold sponsors are Ginen Marianas, Herman’s Modern Bakery, The Shack, The Fresh Factory, Latte Built Fitness & Nutrition, Ete Café, J’s Restaurant, Blossom Floral, The Athlete’s Foot, Dirty Boy Garage, Hyatt Regency Saipan, Marianas Variety, McDonald’s, Godfather Bar, Mobil, Caravans, Boarderline, Tribe Marianas, Pure Kana, Tournament of Champions Saipan, Stitched, Trench Tech MMA Promotions, and Fiesta Resort & Spa.
