August 14, 2006 – Rochester, NY – B. Rich Company Inc. of Webster, NY -- one of the 14 independently owned regional distributors that comprise The EDGE Distributors Group -- loaned local customer Stereo Shop of Rochester, NY two 61-inch NEC plasma TVs (model number PX614A) for use during the recent Wegmans Ladies Professional Golf Association’s (LPGA) Tournament.
The plasma TVs were used to provide information for the scoreboards, general information and hospitality tents during the tournament, which took place at Pittsford, New York’s Locust Hill Country Club from June 22 - 25, 2006. According to B. Rich Company, Inc. principal Bill Richards, the LPGA ran video spots informing the tournament attendees that the plasma TVs were provided complements of audio / video dealer Stereo Shop, benefiting both NEC and the dealer.
Dave Lane, owner of Stereo Shop says, “We appreciate how Bill Richards and The EDGE Group consistently go above and beyond the call of duty to help businesses like ours promote our products and services.

Bill and EDGE: Job well done and thanks!”
