The NMC Foundation is composed of community volunteers committed to elevating higher education opportunities in the CNMI.

“The NMC Foundation would like to invite golfers and anyone interested to come out and play for a great cause,” said NMC Foundation president Ivan Quichocho. “We work hard to host a fun memorable event, as well an exciting competition each year.”

“All proceeds generated from the tournament will go towards supporting NMC’s academic programs and services,” added Quichocho.

Thousands of dollars worth of prizes are up for grabs. Prizes include airfare tickets, a brand new 2012 Hyundai Accent, various raffle prizes, and cash awards.
