HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – March 17th, 2017 – The Collision Repair Education Foundation is requesting the industry’s support of several upcoming fundraisers that are being organized by I-CAR volunteer committees. The I-CAR committees are made up of local industry members who volunteer their time to help support their local collision school programs. Funds raised at these events are reinvested into local collision school programs and help provide school grants, student scholarships, student uniforms, and more.
Upcoming events include:
• March 24th – Texas I-CAR Committee Coalition (Dallas, Houston, San Antonio) – Johnny Dickerson Memorial Golf Fundraiser in Dallas
• April 26th – Atlanta I-CAR Committee Golf Fundraiser
• May 4th – Indianapolis I-CAR Committee Golf Fundraiser
• May 18th – Nashville I-CAR Committee Golf Fundraiser
• May 18th – Memphis I-CAR Committee Golf Fundraiser
• May 25th – Knoxville I-CAR Committee Golf Fundraiser
Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode noted, “I cannot thank all the I-CAR volunteer committees and volunteers enough for their local efforts in volunteering their time to help raise additional funds and awareness for collision school programs. As the funds raised at these events are reinvested into local collision school programs and students, it allows us to work towards ensuring collision school programs have the funding needed to provide the best technical education possible. With the Education Foundation being a full-time staff of 5 and schools around the country needing support, it’s through these committees that we have a real opportunity to make a difference at the local level. I would ask the industry to please support these events so that more can be reinvested into local collision programs.”
