The Golf Club at El Mogote at Paraiso del Mar will host its second charity golf tournament to benefit Fundacion Ayuda los Ninos de La Paz (FANLAP) on Sunday, April 26th.

FANLAP serves lunch on school days to over 170 children in Colonia Laguna Azul. The lunch room is staffed by the mothers of the neighborhood, all volunteering their time. In addition to the lunch room, they have a library/learning center on the second floor to provide a quiet area for the students to do their homework.

Another important program is providing scholarships for students who want to go beyond the basic education offered by the Mexican government. For $300 USD per year, a student can attend junior high school, and for $500 USD per year, they can go on to finish high school. The tournament last year raised enough money to fund five students for the entire year.

The format for the tournament is a two person scramble, with trophies and prizes going to the low gross and low net teams. There will also be prizes for the longest drive and closest to the pin in both the ladies’ and men’s categories.

The entry fee for the tournament is $70, with the proceeds going to the scholarship fund. This includes a continental breakfast, golf cart, clubs (if needed), and the luncheon following play.

Registration in advance is advised. Call Marco Castillo in the pro shop at 612-189-6332 or send an e-mail to
