Foundation held first annual golf tournament in conjunction with the tradeshow
The Water Quality Assn. (WQA) invited Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) to exhibit this year at the WQA Aquatech USA 2012 annual convention and exhibition. The association provided a booth free of charge, and this is the first time the foundation is exhibiting in its own space. The foundation is exhibiting at booth #309.
Last year, a booth was offered to the foundation free of charge, however, the foundation was forced to decline due to time constraints. Instead, H2O Intl. Inc. and KDF Fluid Treatment Inc. provided foundation information to visitors at their respective booths at WQA Aquatech USA 2011 in San Antonio.
"With the industry media behind the foundation - WC&P International, Water Technology and Water Quality Products - we were able to create a lot of awareness and interest amongst industry members in 2011. Having our own booth will be a lot better, and the foundation is sure to get more attention and support from the industry,” said Guillermo Guzman, founder of WWIF.
Jim Bodenner of the Safe Water Team (SWT), a non-profit from Michigan collaborating with WWIF, will be at the booth providing information about the Hydraid Biosand filters and the mission of the newly formed alliance between the two organizations. SWT has five distribution centers with Hydraid systems ready for deployment in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Ghana, Kenya and Honduras. Guzman, Issa Al-Kharusy, Kurt Peterson and Denise Al-Kharusy from WWIF also will be present at the show to share their vision and plans for the foundation.
The Revere Golf Club hosted the foundation's First Annual Golf Tournament on Tuesday, March 6. The tournament was followed by an awards presentation and cocktails to recognize all the registered players and the tournament sponsors for their support.
