On Monday, March 27th, MPISCC came together for the Beverly Laing Golf Tournament & Education Program at the Los Coyotes Country Club. Golfers experienced a top-notch tournament experience as did those who attended the educational sessions. We had 45 golfers who drove, wedged and putted their way through various activities and obstacles while trying to Beat the Pro.
Meanwhile, 23 students learned about event design, current food trends and the benefits (and pitfalls) of renderings.
The event was held in honor of Beverly Laing, a meeting and event industry veteran and avid supporter of MPISCC. She was awarded Planner of the Year in 2008 and Chapter Leader of the Year in 2010 – prior to becoming President Elect in 2013. In November 2014, Beverly was in the middle of her term as Chapter President when she lost her fight to melanoma.
The funds that are raised for this event have been matched by generous donations from Beverly’s family and friends. All of the proceeds go exclusively toward scholarships to be used to join MPI and support current academically enrolled students.
