HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL (February 13, 2019) – Registration for the 18th Annual Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) Golf Fundraiser, co-hosted by the automotive refinish business unit of PPG, is now open. The event will be held Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019. Golfers will enjoy a round of golf at Brickyard Crossing Golf Course in Indianapolis, Ind., voted in Top 100 American Public Golf Courses by Golf Digest and Golfweek. This course has 4 holes inside the oval and 14 holes adjacent to the backstretch of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Organizers anticipate the Golf Fundraiser selling out during the spring, so early registration is encouraged. The event supports the Education Foundation in its mission to provide support for collision repair programs at high school and colleges across North America.
Participants can register online through the Education Foundation’s website.
Registration for the fundraiser includes 18 holes of golf, cart rental, beverages and snacks on the course, lunch, dinner, promotional items, and opportunities to participate in contests throughout the day.
The event will be held in conjunction with the Collision Industry Conference and MSO Symposium events taking place that week in Indianapolis.
“PPG takes pride in supporting the Collision Repair Education Foundation and such a worthy industry challenge. The industry wide shortage of people in our industry has been highlighted as the #1 hurdle we face when staffing for consistent quality repairs. We challenge the entire collision industry repair community to join us in Indianapolis this July to help raise additional funds, support, and awareness for high school and college collision school programs through this great event,” said Tom Wolf, PPG, Director Business Development USCA. “Through the event’s sponsors, players, and volunteers we are able to not only have a great afternoon of golf fellowship but assist the Foundation in supporting the future professionals of our great industry.”
Brandon Eckenrode, Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development, said, “Our annual golf fundraiser is an incredible event that helps us raise funds to provide crucial support to collision school programs across the country. We anticipate that we will be sold out within a matter of a few short months, so please register early.”
