CREF’s golf fundraiser registration sold out

Feb. 1, 2012

Feb. 1, 2012—Registration for the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s (CREF) 11th annual golf fundraiser sold out in January, six months prior to the event.

The CREF’s golf fundraiser is scheduled for July 19 at The Westin’s La Cantera Resort’s The Palmer Course in San Antonio, an 18-hole course created by golf legend Arnold Palmer. The fundraiser is being held in conjunction with the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) meeting and 2012 I-CAR Industry Event.

Due to the early sell-out, the CREF created a waiting list for people who still wish to participate in the fundraiser. Industry professionals interested in being placed on the waiting list should contact Brandon Eckenrode, associate director of development for the CREF, at [email protected].

“This fundraiser selling out four months early in 2011 and now six months in advance this year has been possible through our event’s participating sponsors and registered players,” said Scott Kruger, executive director of the CREF. “The funds being raised by the event assist the Education Foundation in providing support to collision repair students and their school programs, which makes this news even more exciting to announce. We look forward to providing our attendees with a golfing experience they won’t soon forget.”
