Retail trade association Global Market Development Center (GMDC) renamed its two annual golf tournaments -- formerly called the GMDC Golf Classic - the Doug Blough Memorial Tournament to honor its long time director of communications, Doug Blough, who passed away March 22 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.
The official renaming will take place during a special tribute at the golf events.
Blough, an avid golfer, helped create the GMDC Golf Classic, as well as numerous GMDC educational studies.
GMDC holds the golf tournaments during its General Merchandise and Health Beauty Wellness marketing conferences. Proceeds of the tournaments support the growth and advancement of the general merchandise and health, beauty, and wellness industries.
