To all the supportive golfers who have joined us in previous years, many, many thanks for your participation and for your generous donations to the University of Washington Nikkei Alumni Association Scholarship Fund. With your help, scholarships ranging from $2000 to $3000 were awarded last year to six very deserving students. Once again we hope you will join us in this very rewarding golf event. Your support is very much appreciated!

Carts are limited and will be available for those who pay with their registration. Therefore, early registration is highly recommended.
