The golf outing began at 1:30PM with a shotgun start, and according to WMABA Executive Director Jordan Hendler, "The event went really well and was very well-attended. The attendees seemed to have a great time, enjoying the course which was very nice. The reception and prizes were bonuses to a fun round of golf with colleagues."
Hendler recounts, "We had a full flight of teams for the very sunny day out on the course. Following the outing, participants gathered in the reception ballroom to enjoy dinner, prize giveaways and the team winner announcements. WMABA's 2017 Golf Outing saw a better turnout than last year's event, and the course worked very well with us to keep the costs within budget. Overall, the event exceeded our expectations, and we look forward to holding next year's golf outing in the same fashion."

WMABA holds its Annual Golf Outing as a means of generating awareness and funds for the association and the Jerry Dalton Memorial Education Fund which benefits collision repair industry students and educational programs in VA, MD and Washington DC. Hendler states, "These events are how we fund our initiatives and activities for WMABA as well as create a meaningful opportunity to get members together. Our vendors are also very participatory in our golf outing, and they enjoy bringing their clients; they are the reason this event is so successful for us, and we cannot thank them enough."
