Ed. Foundation Opens Registration for Golf Tournament
Jan. 21, 2016—Registration is now open for the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s 15th annual summer golf fundraiser. The fundraiser will take place on Aug. 10 at the Black Gold Golf Club in Yorba Linda, Calif.
The fundraiser takes place in conjunction with Industry Week meetings held in Anaheim. Funds raised during the event will assist the Education Foundation providing support to collision repair students and their school’s collision programs.
In addition to several contest holes, industry members will have the chance 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 or non-golfers can purchase golf balls online ($20 per ball) that will be dropped from a helicopter over a hole during the event. Whoever’s ball goes into the hole (or closest to the pin) will win half of the total funds raised.
“As the Education Foundation is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2016, we plan for one of our best golf fundraisers to date and would encourage industry members getting involved with the event through sponsorship and/or registration. I can’t stress enough that those interested register early as we do anticipate a sold out event this spring. We look forward to hosting industry members from around the country and raising additional funds to help collision schools and students in need,” said Brandon Eckenrode, Collision Repair Education Foundation’s director of development.
Online registration is encouraged, as the event is expected to be sold-out by late March.
