“We noticed early on that people were more than willing to help rally around a cause and support the EIFG,” said Don Spier, vice president of turf and ornamentals at Precision Laboratories. “Following us on Twitter, becoming a fan on Facebook, or scanning a Microsoft® Tag with a smartphone proved to be easy ways for individuals to help a cause that’s important to the turfgrass industry. We’d like to thank everyone that helped make the event a success.”
The Earth Day event generated close to a $3,000 donation. Precision Laboratories made the decision to cover the remaining amount for a total donation to the EIFG of $5,000.
"We'd like to thank Precision Laboratories for the generous donation," said Rhett Evans, CEO of the EIFG, the philanthropic organization of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. "It was a very creative promotion utilizing social media and smart technology, while connecting the work of golf course superintendents with Earth Day."
