Registration Open for Collision Repair Education Foundation Golf Fundraiser
Jan. 20, 2015—Registration for the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s 14th annual summer golf fundraiser on July 22 in Detroit is now open.
Golfers will receive a round of golf at the Arnold Palmer–designed Northville Hills Golf Club and registering online early is encouraged as the event is expected to be sold out by April.
The fundraiser takes place in conjunction with the 2015 NACE/CARS Expo & Conference and Collision Industry Conference (CIC) industry meetings being held that week in Detroit.
Funds raised through this event assist the Education Foundation in providing support to collision repair students and their school’s collision programs.
In addition to several contest holes, one industry member has the opportunity to win up to $12,000 through the LORD Corporation–sponsored helicopter golf ball drop that will take place as part of the event. Golfers and non-golfers can purchase golf balls online ($20 per ball) that will be dropped from a helicopter over a hole on the Northville Hills Golf Club course the day of the event. Whoever sponsors the numbered golf ball that goes in the hole (or closest to the pin) will win 50 percent of the total funds raised from the golf ball drop. Participants do not need to be present to win, and if all 1,200 golf balls are sold the winner will be awarded $12,000.
Early-bird individual player registration is $225 per person ($900 per foursome team) before April 1, and $300 per person ($1,200 per foursome team) after April 1. Registration includes 18 holes of golf, cart rental, complimentary beverages/snacks on the course, lunch, dinner, attendee promotional items, and the opportunity to participate in several contests on the course.
For those attendees who will be traveling into Detroit to attend industry meetings that week, complimentary transportation will be provided to and from the industry events to the golf course.
