Sponsors Support Industry Education Through 2009 PHCC Educational Foundation Golf Tournament

Representatives from ten sponsor companies joined other manufacturer and wholesaler representatives and members of the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors—National Association (PHCC) at Lakewood Country Club in New Orleans, La., for the PHCC Educational Foundation’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament on October 21st. The tournament helped to kick off PHCC’s CONNECT ’09 industry event.

The annual tournament is a fundraising event for the PHCC Educational Foundation, with proceeds going to aid the Foundation’s mission of providing high-quality business management education to the p-h-c industry. Several contests, including a $20,000 hole-in-one, added extra excitement to the day and every player went home with prizes or new golf merchandise, thanks to several generous sponsors.

The following sponsors stepped to the plate to make this year’s tournament a success: Moen Incorporated and Watts generously provided beverages for the event attendees. Rheem Water Heaters sponsored the hole-in-one contests and Milwaukee Tool Company provided breakfast & lunch and prizes for the event. Armstrong Pumps sponsored the longest drive and closest-to-pin contests and provided prizes. Hammond Valve Company sponsored the player’s golf carts for the day. Wheeler Rex sponsored a hole and provided prizes, as did AT&T Mobility, Flexcon Industries, Legend Valve and Lidmate.

The PHCC Educational Foundation, a partnership of contractors, manufacturers, and wholesalers, was founded in 1987 to serve the plumbing-heating-cooling industry by preparing contractors and their employees to meet the challenges of a constantly changing marketplace.
