All-day event benefits
the Motion Picture & Television Fund and the MPSE’s Ethel Crutcher Scholarship

Studio City, California – The Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) will host
its 5th Annual Charity
Golf Tournament
on Monday, September 9th, at Malibu Golf Club in
Malibu California. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Motion Picture
& Television Fund (MPTF) and the MPSE’s Ethel Crutcher Scholarship Fund and
will be pledged in memory of Charles L. Campbell.

“The golf tournament has become a wonderful opportunity for sound
editors to leave their dark rooms and socialize with their peers for a good
cause,” said John Larsen, Director Sound Editorial at Fox Entertainment
Group  and the Honorary Chairman of this
year’s event. “It’s rewarding to help young students seeking to build careers
in the industry, and it’s especially meaningful to do so in the name of one of
the great practitioners of our craft, Chuck Campbell.”
“The selection of John Larson as the honorary
chair for the 5th Annual MPSE Charity Golf Tournament was an easy and
unanimous choice,” noted Paul Rodriguez, Executive Board Member, Treasurer
and Tournament Finance Director. “John is a treasured member of
the film sound community and a longtime supporter of the Motion Picture Sound
Editors events.  We are honored that he has accepted and look forward to
his presence and the opportunity to admire his picture perfect golf swing.”
This year’s tournament will have a Hawaiian theme and has
been expanded to an all-day event. The fun begins at noon with the “Scramble”
Charity Golf Tournament and concludes with an evening luau accompanied by hula
dancers in grass skirts. The festivities also include a putting contest with a
$5000 cash prize, a helicopter ball drop, a silent/live auction, awards for the
“loudest” Hawaiian shirt and “best-dressed” golf cart, and more.  Participants in the golf tournament who
record a hole-in-one become eligible to win a trip to Hawaii. The MPSE will also
inaugurate its annual membership drive at the event.

professional sound and music editors. It promotes the role of sound and music
