(NMC) — Continuing its efforts to support higher education in the Marianas, Marianas Pacific Distributors or Marpac recently donated $3,000 in cash and beverages to Northern Marianas College for its upcoming golf tournament.

The 16th Annual NMC Foundation Open Golf Tournament, scheduled for Saturday, March 21, 2020, will be the first major golf tournament of the year. Proceeds from this year’s tournament will go to helping the college recover from Super Typhoon Yutu, which destroyed 85% of NMC’s facilities and classrooms.

“We are proud to be able to support Northern Marianas College and its efforts to support higher education,” said Guy Pudney, resident manager of Marpac. “I encourage other companies to support the College as well.”
