Leading members of the professional audio/recording community came out to support the Recording Industry Golf Tournament, which benefited L.A.-based charity A Place Called Home.

The 2013 Recording Industry Golf Tournament (RIGT) was held Monday, June 24, 2013, at Malibu Country Club. The event was organized by seasoned event producer Karen Dunn of KMD Productions and benefited the music program at A Place Called Home, a dynamic community center and safe haven in South Central Los Angeles offering programs in education, arts, and well-being to underserved youth from ages 8 to 21 years old. Grammy Award–winning producers and engineers Ed Cherney and Al Schmitt served as Honorary Co-Chairs for the afternoon’s festivities.

“It was a distinct honor to serve as co-chair for the RIGT," Schmitt says. "My colleagues in the industry work very hard most of the time, so it is fun to spend a day unwinding on the links. Karen Dunn put together a fantastic tournament with a great atmosphere, and it was all a very rewarding experience.”

A Harley-Davidson motorcycle hole-in-one prize was provided by Bartels Harley-Davidson in Marina Del Rey.

Bryan Bradley, JBL President, notes, “JBL is proud to have been a sponsor of the RIGT. In addition to supporting a great cause in A Place Called Home, we had the opportunity to spend time with our friends and associates in the industry and interact in a laid-back environment. Karen put together an excellent event, and we’re looking forward to next year’s tournament.”

Approximately 100 players made the rounds following the day’s registration time, which included a putting contest, massages, coffee, Bloody Mary’s, mimosas, muffins, and a selection of swag. After 18 holes, first place was awarded to the team from Sybersound Records Inc. (Steve Graham, Gary Sexton, Wayne Lura, Rob Bourque); second place was Westlake Recording Studios (Steve Burdick, Chris Clark, Ryan Anderson, Chris Spilfogel); and third place went to GC Pro/Sterling Audio Team #1 (Mike Pendleton, Matt Speitel, Bill Hall, Ryan Hall).

Spilfogel of the Westlake team also got the chance at the $1 million shootout, but unfortunately he did not make a winning shot. A special tequila cart proved to be very popular, as was the Mexican dinner buffet offered during the afternoon reception. Also featured during the reception was a live musical performance from 29 Live, a group of children from the A Place Called Home program.

“We were all extremely pleased with how the day’s activities played out,” says event organizer Karen Dunn. “A great time was had by all, and we raised money for an important cause. We cannot wait for the next tournament, in June 2014.”
