BAMA Dollars at Work!

Your valued contributions from our Annual Golf Tournament provides financial assistance to needy and deserving high school students from Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties who wish to attend college or a Technical Education Center to pursue a manufacturing or technology related career. In addition, this year we supported the Science and Engineering Fair, FLATE Robotics Camp and the Middleton HS Robotics Program.

By supporting education that benefits domestic manufacturers, BAMA is making a difference in our local economy. Investing in manufacturing education will help to keep both jobs and manufacturing in general right here at home.
