Former Mayor’s Invitational

Former Lord Mayor’s Cup Invitational Golf Tournament was held at the Royal Niagara Golf Course last August 24, 2019 with over 100 players participating.

Proceeds from the tournament will benefit students from the Philippines who needed financial assistance to finish the course of their own liking in college and/ or university.

Our first recipient is from Iloilo City. He graduated early this year in Pharmacy at the University of San Agustin. He passed the Pharmacy Board Exam last month. He is now a full- pledged pharmacist.

We had two Hole in One sponsors:

1. Autoline Toyota (NF):   2019 Toyota Corolla

2. Mayor Marcel Pan of Goa, Camarines Sur, Philippines.

We had no winners.

Our heartfelt thanks to all our Hole in One sponsors, Hole sponsors, raffle donors, volunteers, staff of the Royal Niagara GC and also to all those enthusiastic people who have contributed so greatly to the success of our tournament. To all the players we thanked them for their patronage and support.

The tournament could not be successful without the dedication the help of our wives and many volunteers.

In behalf of our Organizing/Steering Committee: Maraming SALAMAT po sa inyong lahat.

We are presently helping a young lady, daughter of a farmer who had recent stroke, taking HRM course in Roxas City. We provide her also free board & lodging. We will update you on her progress at school from time to time.

We are donating $500 to the family of a 33 year old Mexican mother of two young children whose first name had been identified as Zenaida who was working on a fruit farm in NOTL for the last two seasons – a migrant worker killed in a hit and run accident last August 17, 2019.
