PPEF Golf Tournament Raises Almost $50,000
On Monday, more than 120 golfers from 60 industry companies hit the green at the Bali Hai Golf Club for the Glen Holt & Fran Ford Memorial Golf Tournament supporting the Promotional Products Education Fund (PPEF). The tournament raised close to $50,000 for PPEF’s college scholarship program.
The tournament honors the late Glen Holt, MAS, a former PPAI board member and Hall of Fame inductee who passed away in 2010, and Fran Ford, Jr., CAS, president of supplier Castelli, a division of Magnet, LLC, and PPAI Hall of Fame inductee who passed away in 2018. A dedicated supporter of PPEF, Ford launched the PPEF Glen Holt Scholarship Golf invitational in 2014. The tournament supports their lasting legacies with PPEF scholarships named in their honor.
