HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – July 21, 2016 – The Texas I-CAR Committees have partnered together to organize the inaugural Johnny Dickerson Golf Memorial Fundraiser that will be held Saturday, October 8 at Firewheel Golf Park in Garland, Texas. Funds raised through this event will benefit both the Johnny Dickerson Memorial Fund and local collision school programs through the Collision Repair Education Foundation.
Johnny Dickerson was involved with I-CAR for over 30 years, working with their field operations team and as a performance training coordinator. Johnny unexpectedly passed away in March of 2015.
Greg Babbitt, North Texas State Chair for I-CAR noted, “Johnny was such a friend and mentor to not just me but so many people in the industry. Johnny impacted everyone in the industry through education, training and most importantly friendship.”
Chris Stilwell, South Texas State Chair for I-CAR added, “To have the opportunity to gather Johnny’s family, friends and colleagues in his hometown of Garland and celebrate his life is truly an honor for us all here in Texas. Being able to support Texas schools through the Collision Repair Education Foundation at the same time is icing on the cake! ”
