DANA POINT, CA :: On Monday, May 22, Hope International University held its 11th Annual Golf Tournament to raise funds for student scholarships and departmental programs. Hosted at the beautiful Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point, the 2017 tournament raised just over $57,000, breaking last year’s record and surpassing the $50,000 mark for the fifth consecutive year.

Participants included avid HIU supporters, donors, friends, church leaders, and pastors, as well as University administrators and staff. After the friendly round on the spectacular coastal course, the day culminated in an awards/appreciation dinner at Cedar Creek Inn in San Juan Capistrano. Congratulations to our course contest winners: Chuck Puckett (Putting Challenge) and Joel Harworth (Closest to the Pin).

President John Derry and the HIU Advancement team expresses deep appreciation to all of our generous sponsors whose significant contributions helped make this year’s event successful, especially our top fundraiser, University Trustee Chuck Puckett. Additional sponsors included Arthur J. Gallagher & Company, Christ’s Church of the Valley San Dimas, Church Development Fund (CDF), Direct Print & Promotions, First Christian Church Huntington Beach, Journey Christian Church, Payne Janitorial, Peter C. Foy & Associates, Proline Electric, and The Refinery Christian Church in Goodyear, Arizona.

The annual HIU Golf Tournament continues to serve as an important and successful fundraising event. Since HIU’s inaugural golf fundraiser in 2007, the event has raised a cumulative total of over $450,000 to fund scholarships, programs, and initiatives.
