This golf outing is key to funding PCF's mission, which is specifically structured to support graphic arts and flexography students as they pursue higher education. The organization has guided more than 4,500 students through programs, competitions and scholarships, and many of those same students have found employment and solid career paths in packaging and label printing.
With the growing gap in the workforce, support of the Phoenix Challenge Foundation is now more important than ever, the organization says.
Sponsorships and foursomes are available: Platinum, Gold and Silver levels, single hole sponsorships and several other categories are available. 100% of all proceeds go directly to supporting flexography throughout college, vocational and high school scholarship competitions and programs. Students involved in the Phoenix Challenge competitions have gone on to very successful careers as companies like JR Cole Industries, Anderson & Vreeland, MacDermid, Sun Chemical, Esko, Mark Andy and more.
“With more than 4,500 students going on to flexo printing and production over the past 20 years, no other organization has exposed more students to flexo than the Phoenix Challenge Foundation,” says Bettylyn Krafft, organization chair. “I am deeply rewarded to see so many of these students find rewarding career across our industry. A true testament to the program.”
More than 80 golfers are expected, making it a relaxed and fun-filled industry-wide networking event.
