The grand opening of the Chippewa Valley Technical College's Transportation Education Center will be taking place in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, on May 15, along with a helicopter golf ball drop fundraiser for the Collision Repair Education Foundation, according to an official event website.

Several industry organizations such as Wisconsin I-CAR Committees, Collision Repair Education Foundation, Global Finishing Solutions, Wisconsin Collision Repair Professionals Inc, and the Wisconsin Automobile and Truck Dealers Association will be presenting the grand opening of the $30+ million education building.

The golf ball drop will take place that afternoon, with the grand opening event planned to last until evening time. Funds raised from ball drop will be split amongst six collision school programs in Wisconsin that applied for the Collision Repair Education Foundation's 2022 Benchmark Grant Application. Donations made through the event’s official website will also go toward this.

There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony as well, performed by the recipients of CREF’s 2022 Benchmark Grants. There will be an open house event with tours of the new facility and opportunities for networking, with CVTC instructor Jerry Goodson having partner tables at the event.
