Golf tourney raises scholarship funds for Parker School


Parker School’s 9th annual Fairways & Friends Scholarship Golf Tournament took place Saturday, Dec. 10 at the Hualalai Resort.

A total of 54 golfers turned out for the event from which all proceeds benefit the school’s financial aid and scholarship programs.

Participants enjoyed playing 18 holes on the Hualalai course, followed by a reception at Ronnie’s Garden at the resort provided by the Four Seasons Hualalai’s Beach Tree Restaurant, complete with a hosted bar, entertainment, and prizes.

First place went to the team of Jeff Richardson and Gary Davis, both from Waimea.

Parker School provides a college-preparatory experience in a small-school setting where K-12 students develop academically while exploring their individual talents. More than 50 percent of these students receive financial assistance every year, and this year’s tournament earned more than $14,000 for Parker’s financial aid and scholarship programs.

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai general manager and Parker School parent, Robert Whitfield, said, “It was the second year I have played in the tournament and it was tremendous fun. The camaraderie among the players is great whether you are a scratch golfer or a duffer.”

Parker School is grateful to the following sponsors and donors for helping make the golf tournament a success: Hualalai Resort and K & G Architects (title sponsors); Four Seasons Resort Hualalai and the Beach Tree Restaurant (reception sponsor); Big Island Country Club, Waikoloa Beach Golf Course, Kings’ Waikoloa Golf Course, Hapuna Golf Course, Mauna Kea Golf Course, Hualalai Resort Golf Club, Hawaii Island Gourmet, Hamakua Nut Company, Hawaii Deep Sea Water, Waiaha Coffee and The Emily T.
