Atlanta I-CAR Committee Raises Over $65,000 for CREF

Written by

On April 25, the Atlanta I-CAR Committee hosted its ninth Annual Golf Tournament at the Golf Club at Bradshaw Farm in Woodstock, GA, with proceeds benefiting the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF). 

More than 250 industry professionals attended, with 30 percent traveling from out of town. This year’s event also attracted a variety of new sponsors. 

According to Gerry Poirier, Chairman of the Atlanta I-CAR Committee, “It was a windy but sunny day, making for great golf weather. We raised over $65,000 for CREF at this year’s event, increasing our total raised to more than $375,000 over the past nine years.

“This year, we had our best Ball Drop ever with over 730 golf balls sold, so our onsite winner received $2,000, and the furthest from the hole winner for the ball drop purchased a ball online from Iowa and won $50.” 

More than 50 raffle prizes were distributed. Each hole featured some sort of activity, ranging from food trucks to back massages, duck chipping and more. 

Event sponsors received recognition in the form of mini hoods painted by local collision students. Two local collision school instructors thanked participants and described how the funds raised aid their programs.
