Hyundai Tournament has been held every January since 1953. During the tournament week, the PGA TOUR players will receive Hyundai’s luxury flagship sedan Equus for use around Maui. Hyundai vehicles, including Equus, Genesis sedan and the all-new Azera, will also be featured throughout the Plantation course and Kapalua resort, demonstrating Hyundai’s ability to develop segment-leading sedans.
The Hyundai Tournament of Champions has a special commitment to Hawaii and Maui communities, and this year numerous local charities will benefit from donations by Hyundai and the tournament organizers.
Hope on Wheels, Hyundai’s non-profit organization committed to the fight against pediatric cancer, and Oahu-area Hyundai Dealers will grant the Kapi‘olani Medical Center for Women & Children of Honolulu a Hyundai Scholar Grant in the amount of $50,000 for pediatric cancer research. In addition to the grant, Hope on Wheels will provide an infrastructure grant to renovate the hospital’s children’s playroom and to open a new section called the Hyundai Hot Spot.
In addition to the Hope on Wheels donation, six local charities will be the primary beneficiaries of the tournament’s proceeds. Since the tournament came to Kapalua Resort in 1999, the tournament’s host organizations have donated nearly $3.8 million to those in need.
