AFTER A TWO-YEAR break, the Mid-Pacific Institute Alumni Association (MPIAA) brought back its Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament on Friday, June 24, 2022, at the Hawai’i Prince Golf Course in Ewa Beach. The weather was great for the 225 golfers who showed up eager to start the day of fun. The players headed out to their designated holes with bento lunches in hand for their shotgun start at 11:30 a.m. Mid-Pacific alumni had a strong presence with 105 alumni golfers and 18 all-alumni teams. After 18 holes of fun in the sun, golfers and volunteers attended a dinner reception in the clubhouse where talented and lucky teams and individuals received a slew of great prizes.

Thanks to our generous corporate & individual sponsors & donors, in-kind donors, food and beverage vendors, our dedicated volunteers, the Mid-Pacific Golf Team, and this year’s golf committee, the MPIAA raised nearly $40,000 for alumni scholarships. All MPIAA Legacy Scholars are extremely grateful for the generous support from everyone who made this event a success.

Thank you to the following Mid-Pacific alumni, businesses, parents, and friends for your support!

Be sure to save the date for next year’s MPIAA Scholarship Golf Tournament, which will be on Friday, June 30, 2023!
