The 2015 PMMI Foundation Golf Tournament (Sept. 27; Bali Hai Golf Club, Las Vegas), held in conjunction with PACK EXPO Las Vegas (Sept. 28–30; Las Vegas Convention Center), has already raised more than $40,000, according to PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. The PMMI Foundation supports processing and packaging education with programs including scholarships, support for student travel to PACK EXPO, and student contests such as The Amazing Packaging Race and the PACK Solutions Challenge.
“Through the PMMI Foundation, PMMI supports the processing and packaging industry’s developing workforce as well as the current labor pool by encouraging ongoing educational efforts," says Maria Ferrante, vice president, Education & Workforce Development, PMMI. “We’re very grateful for the generosity of our sponsors and golfers in helping us advance these important initiatives.”
