$45,000 raised for packaging training and education
In addition to supporting an important cause, the 136 golfers had the chance meet professional golfer Curtis Strange of the PGA Champions tour. Kodak sponsored Strange’s appearance at the tournament, which included playing a hole with eight randomly-selected foursomes.
“With the addition of this year’s event, the biennial tournament has raised more than $400,000 for industry education to date,” says Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI. “We’d like to thank the players who signed up for this event, and our sponsors for helping ensure a strong and vibrant future in the packaging industry.”
