Densho 12th Annual Golf Tournament and Dinner Auction

September 9, 2004
The Golf Club at Newcastle Newcastle, WA

Proceeds from this premier event support the historical preservation and education work of Densho: The Japanese American Legacy Project.


Event Overview

This is the 12th annual incarnation of one of the Pacific Northwest's finest benefit golf tournaments. Golfers are pampered at the region's premier golf destination, The Golf Club at Newcastle, while competing for great prizes. Gorgeous views of Mt. Rainier, Lake Washington, and the Seattle skyline intermingle with hot appetizers, cool desserts, refreshing beverages, and fantastic golf.

After a fun day on the course, golfers join dinner guests for a sushi reception prepared by one of the region's best chefs, Tatsu Nishino. While feasting on sushi, participants have exclusive access to fabulous silent auction items -- travel packages, sporting events, sporting equipment, jewelry, weekend getaways, wine, and artwork. Next, participants retire to the St. Andrews Ballroom for a sumptuous buffet and an entertaining live auction with fun, one-of-a-kind items.
