The Foundation for Packaging Education held its inaugural fundraising event November 8-10 at The Sanctuary resort on Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
Nearly 80 attendees came together to celebrate and support industry education for those already employed in the paper-based converting industries.
The event began with an evening reception and the following morning golfers played the Osprey Point course on Kiawah while others went on an excursion of nearby Charleston, South Carolina.
A reception and dinner capped off the day with Foundation for Packaging Education Chairman Jay Carman making remarks. He reminded everyone of the mission of the Foundation, to ensure the longevity and ongoing development of education and training programs for those already working in the industry. Education and training are vital to employee retention and employee satisfaction.
The funds raised brought the raised and pledged amount of the Foundation to nearly $3 million.
