The 15th Annual TEC L.A. Open will be held on Monday, May 17, at the Malibu Country Club. Famed recording and mix engineer Al Schmitt—a member of the TEC Awards Hall of Fame and recipient of 20 Grammy Awards, as well as the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award—will return as Honorary Chairman. Additionally, renowned music producers and engineers, and professionals from the pro audio industry’s leading production facilities, manufacturers and distributors, will participate in the charity event.

The TEC L.A. Open is presented by the TEC Foundation for Excellence in Audio and will be sponsored for the third consecutive year by Guitar Center Professional. Tournament proceeds support the House Ear Institute’s hearing health outreach service for audio professionals and the TEC Foundation’s TECnology Hall of Fame, which is held annually at the AES convention and recognizes the most historically significant audio innovations and inventors.

Besides the traditional Longest Drive, Closest-to-the Pin and Putting contests, there will be a chipping contest alongside competitions managed by Pin-Up Golf. Players will also have the chance to walk away with some exciting prizes, including a brand new car for a Hole-In-One. The day will conclude with a dinner and awards presentation, along with a raffle and silent auction featuring an assortment of donated audio equipment, musical instruments, wine and gift packages from sponsors and other supporters.

Along with the traditional sponsorships (including Contest Holes, Box Lunch, Golf Cart, Golf Balls and 19th Hole), this year the TEC Foundation will offer a Cigar Sponsorship, Coffee Bar Sponsorship and an Ice Cream Sandwich Sponsorship, as well as customized Hole Sponsorships that will fit any budget.

Sponsorships, foursomes and individual tickets are available now. For more information about these and the silent auction or raffle, visit www.tecfoundation.com, download a registration form, or contact Karen Dunn at 925/708-0307 or via e-mail at Karen@kmdpro.com.
