London, Ontario -- June 20, 2012 -- It was a stunning tribute to a true champion of the industry. Industry stakeholders came together recently for the Second Annual Rick Berg Invitational Golf Tournament. The tournament was held to honour Berg's memory and to help raise awareness and research funding for epilepsy.
Berg passed away in April 2010. He was known to many in the industry through his work for 3M Canada and his seat on the Automotive Industries Association board of directors.
The tournament took place at the Forest City National Golf Club in London, Ontario. Last year's tournament was held at the same location and managed to raise over $60,000 for Rick Berg House, the new home for the Epilepsy Support Centre in London.
The organizers would like to thank sponsors Chase Auto Body Supplies, the Bennett and Berg family, 3M, HSBC, Branton Advertising, Uni-Select, ReMax, UAP, G.D. Boyd & Associates, Kayser Family Foundation, London Community Foundation, AIA Canada, I-CAR, PPG, Accolade Reaction, New Era Grafix, Cotton Candy, Golf Town and Across Canada Warehouses for helping to make the event a success.
