CIF Holds Successful Fund Raiser in Palm Springs, CA

On January, 16, 2014, the Collision Industry Foundation (CIF) held its fourth annual gala fundraiser in Palm Springs, CA. CIF hosted a lively cocktail party, complete with hor d'oeurves and delicious cocktails at the renowned Lulu California Bistro. CIF president, Bill Shaw, addressed the crowd with fellow trustees. About 100 people from the industry attended the event. Attendees were able to participate in a raffle and silent auction featuring many donated items, including high-end electronics and an Indy race car package. The gala was very successful and CIF was able to raise an unprecedented US$32,000. The major focus of CIF support has been the Collision Industry Relief Fund. The fund helps collision repair professionals who have lost their livelihoods from a natural disaster or other catastrophe. This event was the most successful event yet for CIF. Cheryl Boswell, CIF treasurer, said, “We could not have done this without the help of those who donated silent auction items and sponsored the event.”
