M.R. Mold Hosts Second Annual iWarriors Golf Outing

iWarriors West Coast Outing Raises $17,500

The iWarriors 2024 Annual West Coast Golf Outing organized by M.R. Mold & Engineering was held on February 9th, 2024, following the Plastec West / MD&M exhibition in Anaheim. The event was a success, held at the Navy Golf Coast at Seal Beach, raised $17,500 to support wounded combat veterans.

“Everyone thought coming to sunny California was the way to golf in February, but Mother Nature had other thoughts,” said Rick Finnie, M.R. Mold’s president. “The atmospheric river rain system the week before put the event in jeopardy, but the committee reconfigured the activities and the event was able to be held, and a good time was had by all!”

iWarriors is a registered 501C-3 entity organized by Progressive Components, and funds are raised throughout the year to provide wounded vets with a personally engraved iPad that is preloaded with neural exercise apps for those suffering from PTSD, as well as links to V.A. resources to assist in communication, scheduling, and counseling. The iWarriors initiative is assisted by Moldmaking Technology Magazine, the American Mold Builders Association, as well as numerous companies within the injection mold industry.

The event was made even more meaningful with a vet onsite to receive his tablet, and he shared his experience overseas that qualified him for 2 purple hearts, described how this gift will be extremely beneficial, and thanked all of the organizers, participants, and sponsors.

The organizing committee wishes to thank all of the event sponsors: Alliance Laser, AMBA, Belmont Equipment, Bonifacio Consulting, Crystallume, DMS Components, EDM Sales, EDRO, Hasco, INCOE, Kracht, M.R. Mold, Mastip, MedASia, MoldMaking Technology Magazine, Peterson’s Media Group, Prestige Mold, Progressive Components, Reaction Plastics Solutions, S&D Tool, Shin-Estu, United Tool & Mold, UPS Mold, Vincent Tool, VIP Rubber, Westminster Tool and Wisconsin Engraving.

This was the 2nd annual West Coat event, and joins an annual golf outing organized each September in northern Illinois by Alliance Specialties and Laser Sales, as well as an outing each October in South Carolina hosted by United Tool & Mold.
