A great advertising mind is a terrible thing to waste. Trade association thinkLA understands that, and that's why it holds the annual AIEF Charity Golf Day: so the Lee Clows of the future won't be wasted picking apples for minimum wage, and our fledgling Alex Boguskys don't wind up flipping the burgers at Burger King. During the all-day event (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.) on Sept. 15, senior and executive members of the ad and marketing community will convene for a day on the green for Google-sponsored golf and networking at the Moorpark Country Club in Moorpark, Calif. This year's honorary chair is Steve Jett, national manager of marketing communications for Lexus. Registration is 100 percent tax deductible. The Advertising Industry Emergency Fund benefits individuals in the SoCal ad and promotions community who have experienced emergencies—such as the fires, earthquakes and landslides that are the region's specialty. AIEF gives people with life-threatening illnesses financial support for medical bills and other expenses. For more details on AIEF Charity Golf Day, go here.
