PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, reports the 2013 PMMI Education & Training Foundation Golf Tournament raised $50,000 in support of training and education for packaging and processing professionals.

Including Gold Sponsor Morrison Container Handling Solutions, 32 companies sponsored the tournament. A field of 136 industry executives played in the biennial event on Sept. 22, the day before PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013 opened, at the Royal Links Golf Course in Las Vegas.
