Golfers From More Than 30 States & Canada Participate in CREFs Virtual Fundraiser 

The Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) got creative and allowed its supporters to "hit the links" to support a great cause through its first virtual golf fundraiser, held July 25.

CREF wasn't able to hold its annual golf fundraiser due to the canceled in-person national industry meetings scheduled for Philadelphia this summer.


Registrants from more than 30 states and Canada participated virtually by golfing 18 holes from the comfort of their couch through the TopGolf online/app game.


The $25 registration fee will help support high school and college collision programs this upcoming school year.  


Lee Sullivan from Georgia had the winning score of 53 and won the grand prize of a GoldenTee home arcade unit, sponsored by Enterprise.


"Being in unique times means coming up with unique ideas to help get the industry involved with raising support for the future professionals of the industry," noted CREF Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode. "On behalf of the staff, board and collision instructors across the country, thank you to all the virtual golfers. As we are quickly approaching the start of the new school year, instructors are in need of support now more than ever and every donation helps."


CREF is working on additional virtual fundraiser ideas for the fall and winter. If your company would like to get involved with supporting high school and college collision programs, contact Eckenrode at Brandon.Eckenrode@ed-foundation.org.
