Foundation events are announced each year in the Summer GAPNA newsletter.
Past Foundation Events
The GAPNA Foundation hosts an annual scramble Golf Tournament. Members and Friends of the Foundation with a wide range of skills enjoy an afternoon of fun and fellowship that raises money for the GAPNAF Awards. Prizes are given for the winning team, longest drives for men and women, longest putt and the closest to the pin. So, consider playing golf! Players of all levels are welcome because it is a scramble/best ball with no pressure. The goal is to have fun and enjoy the day together raising money for The GAPNA Foundation.
