April 9, 2014

The annual Phoenix Challenge Foundation Golf Tournament will be held on Wednesday, August 6, in Monroe, NC.

The Phoenix Challenge Foundation has announced the dates for its annual golf tournament, the organization's primary fundraiser supporting graphic arts and flexography through education. The PCF Tournament will be held on Wednesday, August 6, 2014 at a new location – Stonebridge Golf Club in Monroe, NC, USA. Converters, printers, prepress trade houses, flexo industry suppliers; anyone inside or outside the industry is encouraged to participate. More than 80 golfers are expected this year, making it a relaxed and fun-filled industry-wide event.

To support the fundraising effort, the Foundation is offering a range of sponsorship opportunities from Platinum, Gold, Silver levels to single hole sponsorships and several other categories including food, beverage or a foursome of players. A few major event sponsors return every year, renewing their commitment to providing scholarships and building awareness of flexo in education.  All proceeds go directly to supporting flexography throughout college, vocational and high school scholarship competitions and programs.

The golf tournament itself is a Captain’s Choice four-man scramble with great prize opportunities ranging from a new car, vacation trips, cash and many door prizes. Teams are awarded first, second and third place and players will be recognized for longest drives and closest to the pin.

The Phoenix Challenge Foundation exists solely through generous donations made by industry supporters, businesses and individuals. The primary purpose is building awareness and education of flexography throughout North America. Businesses and organizations participating as sponsors will have access to a variety of options that in-turn deliver a variety of marketing and brand awareness benefits.
