Aloha and Mabuhay,
We invite you to join and support the 3rd Annual Tante’s Kökua Golf Tournament and
Food Fest sponsored by the Tante & Araceli Urban Foundation. It will be held on Saturday,
October 5, 2019. The Golf Tournament will be held at the Kona Country Club. The
Food Fest (Awards Banquet) will immediately follow the Golf Tournament and be held
at 75-5737 Kalawa Street, Kailua-Kona and feature several chefs serving tapas.
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 $35,000 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, and graduating seniors from Kealakehe and Konawaena high schools.
How Can You Help:
• Be a Corporate Sponsor.
• Golf in the tournament.
• Be a Hole Sponsor.
• Donate Cash.
• Donate Prizes for awards.
