Aloha and Mabuhay,

We invite you to join and support the 5th Annual Tante’s Kökua Scholarship Golf Tournament sponsored by the Tante & Araceli Urban Foundation. It will be held on Saturday, October 1, 2022. The Golf Tournament will be held at the Kona Country Club.

Proceeds from the Golf Tournament will fund the Foundation’s Scholarships program and provide “Kökua” financial assistance to the Intellectually Gifted and Talented Students in Athletics, Culture, Arts, and Music. This will allow students to pursue higher learning and training in their respective areas of talent.

To date, we have donated over $58,000 to scholarships, culture and arts, athletics and other worthy recipients. Proceeds from previous years’ tournaments directly benefited the following institutions: Kealakehe Girls Soccer Program, Kealakehe Boys Varsity Soccer Team, Konawaena boys soccer program, 8th Maui Regional Science Olympiad Tournament, U.H. Maui

College I.M. Ready Study Abroad Program, Kona Dance & Performing Arts, Partners and Development Foundation Tutu and Me Program, U.H. Palamanui Campus Culinary Arts Scholarship, Kealakehe Water Polo Team, West Hawaii Exploration Academy, Makua Lani Christian Academy, and graduating seniors from Kealakehe and Konawaena high schools.
