LOS ANGELES – September 6, 2022 – Cathay Bank announced that it will hold the 45th Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at the Industry Hills Golf Club. Over the years, Cathay Bank raised almost $2 million through its charity golf tournament, which benefits local nonprofit organizations, and demonstrates its mission to help communities thrive.
“Although our annual charity golf tournament paused for two years due to unprecedented circumstances, we never forget our commitment to the communities. Today, our communities need our support more than ever,” said the Cathay Bank Foundation Chairman Peter Wu. “Please join us for a day of fun and to support our communities.”
Cathay Bank’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament began in 1977.

Player registration is open now, and sponsorships are also available. The enrollment fee is $200 per player, including green and range fees, golf cart, lunch, dinner, and gift.
