Golf for a Cause
By Rick Schonely
On July 30, Nathan Ignacio and his ohana and friends hosted the Trucker Dukes Golf Tournament to help Trucker’s ohana as he battles brain cancer. Trucker Dukes is 3 years old and has endured many rounds of chemotherapy, radiation and surgeries to try to beat the disease.
Ignacio works for Maui County Fire Department and so does Trucker’s dad, Ua. Ignacio wanted to thank all who helped put on this tournament.
“Our first thank you is to Lord Jesus for providing such a beautiful sunny day for all people to enjoy,” he said. “And his continued blessings upon little Trucker and his ohana.”
The tournament was held on a beautiful sunny Saturday at beautiful Ironwoods Golf Course and Ignacio wanted to thank them for dedication to the game of Golf.
“Thank you Iron Woods Golf Course for your hard work and dedication in providing a beautiful course so that Molokai residents still have a place to golf and fellowship but especially to continue to introduce the game of golf to our youth and thank you to the 30 golfers that participated in the Trucker Dukes event,” he added.
Ohana, friends and the Molokai golfing community helped Ignacio make this tournament a success and Ignacio wants to thank them. Go to teamtrucker.org for more info and how you can help Trucker’s cause.
