The Collision Repair Education Foundation’s (CREF) winter virtual golf fundraiser, exclusively sponsored by PPG Automotive, will support local high school and college automotive collision repair school programs. CREF is collaborating with 90 I-CAR volunteer committee groups nationwide and individuals can ensure that 80% of their registration fee will be re-invested back into local collision schools. Funds raised will help ensure these technical programs have the needed tools, equipment, and supplies so that the students receive the best technical education possible and better prepare them for employment in the automotive collision industry.
This event will be a private in-game tournament within TopGolf’s online golfing game, which will be held from Friday, November 20th through Sunday, December 20th. Golfers will be able to play an unlimited number of rounds of virtual golf during those 30 days, while viewing an in-game leaderboard to see how they are doing compared to others golfing from around the country. With the event being virtual, zero actual golfing skill is required and golfers can play from the comfort of their home.
