GOLFERS RAISE EDUCATION FUNDS

Manufacturing Jewelers and Suppliers of America hosted its first-ever charity golf tournament and raised nearly $7,000 for the MJSA Education Foundation. More than 90 golfers played in the “best ball” tournament at Ledgemont Country Club in Seekonk, Mass., on Aug. 7.

The MJSA Education Foundation is a nonprofit organization providing direction and funding for the creation of jewelry industry education programs. Since 1979, MJSA and its affiliated agencies have awarded more than $80,000 to college students studying jewelry design and manufacturing.
