Funds raised at the tournament, held Sept. 12 at the Oasis Golf Club in Loveland, Ohio, will benefit the Produce Marketing Association Foundation for Industry Talent’s Tip Murphy Scholarship for Leadership Excellence, according to a news release from Newark, Del.-based PMA.
The third annual tournament drew more than 100 industry members. The scholarships cover recipients’ registration fees and hotel expenses at PMA and PMA FIT events.
Murphy, a produce salesman and former member of the PMA board of directors, died in 2008. Murphy worked for Cincinnati-based Chiquita Brands International Inc. and Irwindale, Calif.-based Ready Pac Foods Inc.
