WASHINGTON, DC – The National Association of Perishable Agricultural Receivers (NAPAR) has announced dates for its annual golf tournament named in honor of produce industry icon Pete Class, former CEO of the Class Produce Group.
On May 13th, 2017, more than 100 golfers from the industry will tee off at Royce Brook Golf Club in Hillsborough, NJ, in a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. The round will be followed by an awards luncheon and a raffle, featuring cash prizes of $2,000 and $1,000, consumer electronics, golf equipment, and golf shop gift certificates.
In a company press release, NAPAR’s Chairman, Matthew D’Arrigo of D’Arrigo Brothers Co. of New York, said that “the continued success of NAPAR’s annual Pete Class Memorial Golf Tournament is due to the hard work of our members and the generous support of our sponsors.” And the association also noted that the tournament traditionally enjoys the support of more than 100 industry sponsors, and sponsorship opportunities are still available at NAPAR’s website.
Recognition of sponsors occurs at registration, on the course with tee box signs, and on the company’s website, and sponsorship commitments received by Tuesday, May 9th will be fully recognized on the course.
The annual event is planned and coordinated by the NAPAR Golf Tournament Committee, a committee including Derrick Jenkins of Wakefern Food Corp., Chairman Emeritus Joe Procacci of Procacci Brothers Sales Corp., Jay Rosenstein of William Rosenstein & Sons, and Matthew D’Arrigo.
