2017 Mercedes Benz of Albuquerque Golf Tournament

The Mercedes-Benz Dealer Championships Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, August 11, 2017 at Paa-ko Ridge Golf Club. This is one of dozens of tournament held across the country by Mercedes-Benz dealers and the sixth year that Mercedes-Benz of Albuquerque has participated.

Mercedes-Benz of Albuquerque’s Managing Partner, Tripp Steel, is pleased to host the annual tournament that is more of a skills challenge for serious golfers, but at the same time it is a fun event for participants. The format is a handicapped two-man best ball. “It is an honor for me and my team at Mercedes-Benz of Albuquerque to host this tournament for such a worthwhile non-profit. On my first visit to PEI’s Oral School, I was overwhelmed by what they were accomplishing with children who would not be able to hear and talk without these programs. As a dad with three kids, I know how much it means to the parent of the children who receive services at PEI to be able to do everything possible to insure that their children have normal lives.”

Presbyterian Ear Institute, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, helps deaf and hard-of-hearing adults and children develop and strengthen auditory and oral communication skills using the advanced technology of cochlear implants and/or hearing aids. PEI has a number of different programs for hearing impaired adults and children including early diagnosis of hearing loss programs like the Parent-Infant Program and Newborn Hearing; the School for Oral Deaf Education as well as research programs.
