The Nashville I-CAR Volunteer Committee recently raised more than $15,000 for the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) during the group’s annual golf fundraiser in Mount Juliet, TN. The funds raised at the outing will be reinvested back into collision school programs and students in the Nashville area through grants and student scholarships from the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
The event took place on May 15, 2013 at the Windtree Golf Club. The 100 participating golfers enjoyed lunch, a round of golf, snacks and beverages on the course, and dinner. They also had the opportunity to partake in a putting contest, closest-to-the-pin contest, and raffle drawing.
Instructors and students from local collision schools were also in attendance and got the chance to speak with the donors who support their school. Many industry volunteers and corporate sponsors helped make this event possible. Inter-industry organizations and individuals who are interested in supporting the Education Foundation should contact Brandon Eckenrode at Brandon.Eckenrode@ed-foundation.org or 847-463-5244.
