Global anilox roll supplier Harper Corporation of America is a strong supporter of education, sponsoring and participating in numerous initiatives to raise funds for programs, scholarships, and other causes. The company recently held its ninth annual Midwest Converters Golf Outing to raise funds for the Phoenix Challenge Foundation.
Co-founded by employees of Harper Corporation and All Printing Resources in 2004, this event has continued to grow throughout the years, allowing professionals to network on a national level while raising funds to support flexographic education. This year's outing was sponsored by 21 co-suppliers, including ink companies, press OEMs, plate suppliers, and print sleeve suppliers, that sponsored 29 different teams that participated in the day-long competition comprising 18 holes of golf, dinner, and a raffle. The event was held at Royal St. Patrick’s Golf Course in Wrightstown, Wisconsin.
This year’s event included a three-par betting hole where $500 was raised to support the Phoenix Challenge Foundation. This organization provides educational programs geared toward student placement in the flexographic printing industry. Through these programs students are able to gain a better understanding of the industry and how they can get involved in supporting its future.
Harper Corporation of America is proud to support the flexographic printing industry through fundraising and other events and looks forward to next year’s annual Midwest Converters Golf Outing.
