The Dale M. Foundation held its First Annual Dale M. Inouye Memorial Golf Tournament on April 28, 2012 at the Malibu Golf Club. Over 80 golfers came out on a beautiful, clear spring day in support of the tournament which helps to carry on the annual basketball tournament. The Dale M. Inouye Memorial Basketball Tournament, established in 2010, is held in August at Cal State University Dominguez Hills. Inspired by the love of sports, especially basketball and golf, both tournaments perpetuate the memory of Dale and promote his spirit of gratitude to family and friends, his love of life, and his “Inner Strength” to never give up hope. The luxurious Malibu Golf Club is the site of the original Dale golf tournament, held before Dale left us, where he had spent the day running from hole to hole to play golf and take photos with all his family and friends. (Dale is pictured here in 2007)

The 2012 DMI Golf Tournament began with a putting contest for all golfers, a group photo, and inspirational speech from the Malibu staff. This friendly golf tournament with a modified scramble format, featured some specialty game holes, like Throw Like a Pro and Drive Like a Pro, and included longest drive and closest to the pin contests. The Inner Strength Award was presented to the foursome who exhibited the same perseverance that Dale had. Each golfer received a foursome photo and generous tee prize package, which included donated Phiten products and King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread. Golf was followed by a dinner buffet, catered by The Loft Hawaiian Restaurant.

Along with the 80+ golfers, there were many tee sponsors and corporate or private donors who generously contributed to the success of the tournament. Proceeds from the golf and basketball tournaments are donated to promote cancer research and youth sports. Please join us at the 2013 DMI Golf Tournament to be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at Malibu Golf Club.
