(NMC) — In its ongoing efforts to further higher education in the Marianas, Pacifica Insurance is offering a $5,000 hole-in-one prize for the upcoming 16th Annual Northern Marianas College Foundation Open golf tournament scheduled for Saturday, March 21, 2020. The first lucky golfer who makes a hole-in-one at the LaoLao Bay Golf and Resort’s hole four at the East Course will win the $5,000 prize.

“NMC plays a vital role in the lives of our people and their education,” said Shirley Sablan, president of Pacifica Insurance. “They need our support now more than ever before to recover and rebuild in order to keep essential programs running, classrooms functional and facilities advanced. Golf for a cause or donate.”

Proceeds from this year’s tournament will go to helping the College with its recovery efforts from Super Typhoon Yutu, which destroyed most of NMC’s campus in 2018.
