Audio-Technica Supports Nashville Engineer Relief Fund (NERF) as a Sponsor of the Annual AudioMasters Benefit Golf Tournament

STOW, OH — For several consecutive years, Audio-Technica has supported the Nashville Engineer Relief Fund (NERF) by serving as a sponsor of the annual AudioMasters Benefit Golf Tournament at Harpeth Hills Golf Course in Nashville. This year’s tournament just took place on May 14-15, with Audio-Technica hosting one of the course holes and competing as a foursome on Day 2, the “Sweetwater AudioMasters Studio Day,” focusing on the Recording Studio community. The yearly event – the primary fund-raiser benefiting NERF – has become one of the most highly anticipated industry functions in Nashville.

About the Nashville Engineer Relief Fund:
The Nashville Engineer Relief Fund originated through the efforts of the AES Nashville Section and NAPRS in holding the 1st Annual Audio Yard Sale in Sept. 1997.  Proceeds from this initial event assisted with the financial recuperation of a Nashville engineer who was stricken with a life-threatening health problem. In May 1998, the 1st AudioMasters Benefit Golf Tournament began as the primary fund-raising event contributing to the NERF, and has been held at the Harpeth Hills Golf Course every May since. The stated goal of this fund is “to allow financial assistance…for individuals in our (engineering) community who, through illness and tragic circumstances, are unable to practice their profession or face other serious problems.”
