CARSTAR Raises Money for Children’s Hospital
Oct. 6, 2015—CARSTAR Puget Sound Business Group recently held its 10th Annual CARSTAR Charity Golf Tournament, which raised a total of $35,500 for the Seattle Children’s Hospital. The event was held at the Golf Club at Newcastle in Newcastle, Wash.
This year’s celebrity guest at the tournament was Marcus Trufant, former All-Pro cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks.
“Marcus was great,” said Rosanna Segers, marketing director for the CARSTAR Puget Sound Business Group. “He has a real heart for children. Marcus stayed at the Seattle Children’s Hospital hole and helped raise additional money for the charity by doing “Cheat for Charity” players were given an opportunity to have their picture made with him and to tee off 150 yards in front of the tee box for a donation.”
All 22 of the Puget Sound CARSTAR locations pitched in to help make the event a success. In addition to a day of golf, prizes were given away through a charity raffle. Money was also raised through a silent auction and a donation pyramid that sold out at the tournament banquet. 144 golfers participated in the tournament.
