Promotional Products Education Foundation once again welcomed generous support from attendees at The PPAI Expo this week.

The PPEF Glen Holt Scholarship Golf Invitational, held on Monday, welcomed 31 teams of four to enjoy a game in the pleasant 60-degree weather. The event raised net proceeds of more than $50,000.

The following contributors generously donated products and sponsored services and holes: SAGE; HALO Branded Solutions; The Legacy Group; CPS/Keystone Line; Laura Holt, MAS; iPROMOTEu; Pioneer Balloon; Spector & Co.; Wincraft-LarLu; David Woods, MAS; alphabroder; BIC Graphic; CG Incentives; Hit Promotional Products; JAM; Perry Ellis; Prime Resources; SanMar; and Srixon.

PPEF also brought back its Branch Out & Give Tree and live auction, which was held during the PPEF Donor Appreciation Reception on Monday. “For the live auction held during PPEF’s Donor Appreciation Reception, we raised $3,400 on four packages–a Golf Package, a two-piece TUMI package, a grill package and two University of Notre Dame football tickets,” says Sara Besly, PPEF Foundation manager.

The auction items were donated by PAR ONE, TUMI Inc., Weber-Stephen Products, Omaha Steaks, BIC Graphic and industry members Dolly Duffy and Dan Fangman.

By Wednesday, the Branch Out & Give Tree had garnered $4,820 in on-site donations and through online registration. On-site donations are expected to continue through the end of the show.
