form or join a team, either by institution or any
other designation, to raise funds for research. All
participants will receive a high-quality running
T-shirt, but the team with the highest funds raised
will receive the honor of wearing a specially
designed “Top Fundraiser” T-shirt.
NCS’s Golf for Research will take place on the
Waikoloa Beach Course at the beautiful Waikoloa
Beach Resort on Thursday, Oct. 12. Enjoy the view
of the Pacific Ocean straight before you, while lava
fields border the fairway on the left and right. Net
proceeds from the tournament will be donated to
the NCS research campaign. Golfers of all skills/
levels are welcome and encouraged to participate.
The third annual NCS friendly soccer game — U.S.
vs. International — will be played on Thursday,
Oct. 12, near the Hilton Waikoloa.
To close out our annual meeting, attendees and
their guests will head out to the Lagoon Lanai
of the Hilton Waikoloa for our annual banquet,
Friday, Oct. 13 — this year,
a luau! Set adjacent to the
Grand Promenade and the
Grand Staircase, the Lagoon
Lanai provides a beautiful
location with views of the
four-acre salt-water lagoon
and waterfall. Attendees will
enjoy a Big Island themed
menu, one-hour luau show
and a musical performance
by Beyond Paradise, one
of Hawaii’s premier top 40
bands on the island.
I look forward to
celebrating NCS’s 15th
anniversary in Waikoloa,
Hawaii with you all!
