July 19, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Reston, Va.; July 19, 2013 - PACK EXPO Las Vegas owner and producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, is pleased to announce that Morrison Container Handling Solutions has chosen to be the Gold Sponsor and the Luncheon Sponsor for the PMMI Education & Training Foundation Golf Tournament (Sept. 22, 2013; Royal Links Golf Course, Las Vegas).

The biennial tournament is the traditional kick-off event for PACK EXPO Las Vegas (Sept. 2325, 2013; Las Vegas Convention Center) and a critical fundraiser for the PMMI Education & Training Foundation.

"Sponsorships at the PMMI Education & Training Foundation Golf Tournament are about much more than golf or visibility," says Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI." With their generous support, sponsors like Morrison Container Handling Solutions are helping to grow the industry by supporting the next generation of packaging and processing industry professionals."

Morrison Container Handling Solutions has long demonstrated its commitment to education, and the sponsorship opportunities at the PMMI Education & Training Foundation Golf Tournament allow the company another way to express its vision.

"For Morrison, sponsoring the golf tournament is a win on so many levels," says Nick Wilson, President, Morrison Container Handling Solutions. "Education is a core value for our company, so while we'll raise our visibility within the industry, I think it's just as important - if not more so - that we will also be supporting industry education, workforce development and research."

Annually, the PMMI Education & Training Foundation provides over $100,000 in financial assistance to packaging students and programs at 4-year and 2-year schools, through three categories of funding:

  • Academic scholarships, including those presented as prizes to the top three teams in the Student Packaging Solution Contest at PACK EXPO;
  • Travel scholarships for students and educators to attend PACK EXPO; and
  • Tuition reimbursement for qualified member employee education.
