The annual NAB golf fundraiser has been renamed the PHILIP J. LOMBARDO Charity Golf Tournament, in honor of the BROADCASTER FOUNDATION's Chairman. The tribute is being bestowed on LOMBARDO for his courage to care and his dedication to championing on behalf of those in need.
Held immediately prior to the opening of the NAB Show in LAS VEGAS, the PHILIP J. LOMBARDO Charity Golf Tournament takes place SUNDAY, APRIL 11th, 2010 at the BALI HAI GOLF CLUB.
"I am honored by the Board's action," LOMBARDO stated. "I am a firm believer in giving back and the BROADCASTERS FOUNDATION provides the perfect opportunity to help colleagues in our industry who have fallen on hard times. I would encourage everyone in our great business to become involved with this worthwhile mission."
"PHIL's steadfast commitment to the mission of the BROADCASTERS FOUNDATION has strengthened and enhanced our ability to help broadcasters in need," BFA Pres. JIM THOMPSON said. "He is a guiding force in directing the Foundation's efforts and a true advocate for the broadcast industry."
