The Phoenix Challenge Foundation (PCF) has announced that the 2010 Phoenix Challenge Foundation Golf Tournament will take place on July 28 at the Arnold Palmer-designed Birkdale Golf Club in Huntersville, NC, USA.

The tournament, a fun way to spend time with flexo printers, educators, industry suppliers and luminaries while supporting PCF, will follow a Captain's Choice 18-hole scramble format. The event begins with an 8:00 a.m. shotgun start and includes lunch, two drinks and a variety of prize holes: putt for cash, longest drive, hole-in-one, closest to the pin and plenty of door and attendance prizes. The cost per player is $100.

The 2010 tournament is open to anyone interested in supporting education through college and vocational scholarships, flexo competitions and teacher support programs. Sponsorships are available for suppliers and companies interested in marketing themselves to key flexo industry professionals.

All proceeds go directly to PCF to further the efforts of the foundation. Registration and sponsorship packages are limited. Contact Bettylyn Krafft of the Phoenix Challenge Foundation at 704-309-3748, or Wayne Fortenberry at 901-369-4494 for more information and to register.

Founded in 1998, the Phoenix Challenge Foundation is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization of industry professionals dedicated to the recruitment and development of the future workforce for flexography. Each year, flexo students and teachers from throughout the US and Canada are invited to the Phoenix Challenge Competitions.
