A Note From our Chairman

Fellow Golfers,

You’re invited to participate in the 39th annual “Go For Broke” Golf Tournament benefiting the Japanese American Community Graduation Program. Founded in 1985 by Denver restaurant industry leader and philanthropist Leo Goto, this memorable golf event is the major fundraiser for the only program where Denver’s Japanese American community and friends come together and work to honor and support our community’s high school graduates.

Your participation is an investment in our youth, as these students will attain knowledge, ideas, and experiences to help them face new challenges and lead their communities through their lifelong commitment, volunteerism, and achievement.

Please register today! This year’s tournament will again be most enjoyable, a continued collaborative success for one of the community’s outstanding events. I hope you will be a part of it.
