8th annual
charitable event co-sponsored by the Cinema Audio Society.

Studio City, California –  The Motion
Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) and the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) will host the 8th
Annual MPSE Golf and Poker Tournament, September 18, 2016 at the Angeles
National Golf Club in Sunland, California. Proceeds from the event will benefit
the MPSE’s Ethel Crutcher Scholarship Fund, which provides mentoring and
support for student sound artists, as well as the organization’s work in
promoting the role of sound in movies, television, gaming and other
entertainment media.
This year, marks the first time that the Cinema Audio
Society has joined MPSE in sponsoring the event. Serving as Honorary Chairman
will be Ron Kutak, the longtime National Executive Director of IATSE Editors
Guild, Local 700, who is retiring from his post November 1.

The day’s activities will include a scramble-style golf and
poker tournaments, with trophies and prizes for 1st, 2nd
and 3rd place finishers in each event.  The golf tournament will also feature a
hole-in-one contest with a $10,000 prize and a putting contest with a $5,000
prize. Other games and surprises will occur throughout the day. The event will
climax with an awards dinner. The MPSE will also inaugurate its annual membership
drive at the event.
“The golf tournament is one of our most popular events of
the year,” says MPSE President Tom McCarthy. “It’s a day for networking with
sound artists, filmmakers, vendors and studio executives. The event is open to
anyone who is interested in playing golf or poker, or simply wants to socialize
and support an organization that works hard all year in behalf of the art and
craft of sound. I am extremely proud and excited that the CAS is co-sponsoring
this event as both organizations support the art of sound and the complete
sound community.”
CAS President Mark Ulano expects the Golf and Poker
Tournament to be the first of many joint ventures between the two sound
organizations. “The mutual members collaborate to create the soundtracks people
hear when they go to the movies or watch television,” Ulano says. “So, it’s
only natural that we should work together on professional and philanthropic
activities that promote the art of sound.”
