The Fourth Annual Las Vegas Randy Memorial Golf Classic was a chilly, windy day in Las Vegas but it was a great day for golfing to help those in need. Presented by EACA, the EDPA Foundation, and ExhibitorLive, more than 75 exhibit industry professionals came together at the Painted Desert Golf Course on Feb. 25 to raise funds for tradeshow industry families who have suffered severe tragedies or face insurmountable medical expenses.
As in all RSMGC golf events, participants competed in a golf scramble for a little fame, a little less fortune, and a fair amount of bragging rights. The winning foursome, with a score of 11 under par was comprised of Jim Genzano, Joe Terzis, and Sandro Schiavo of Sho-Link along with Jason Weddle of Hamilton Displays. Second place, with a score of ten under, went to Bill Glasser, Exhibit Concepts, James Zacharias, Brumark, Rodney Brannon, PRG, and Paco Collazo of SISTEXPO. And, the third place foursome, with a score of eight under par, was made up of Bart Sakosky, Exhibit Concepts, Mike Morrison, WS Displays, Chris Clark, Riverview Systems Group and Greg Christensen of 760 Displays.
The RSMGC board would like to recognize and give thanks to the LV Randy Sponsors, and the volunteers who helped make this year’s event a success including Dione Dennis, Alisha Williams, Sandra Braun, Jenny Ward and Stacy Barnes, The Fifth Annual Las Vegas Randy will be February 24, 2019 at Painted Desert Golf Course.
