I-CAR Volunteer Committees Collaborating with CREF on Virtual Golf Fundraiser Benefiting Local Collision School Programs


To raise additional support for high school and college collision school programs, the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) will be collaborating with 90 I-CAR Volunteer Committee groups nationwide on a winter virtual golf fundraiser, exclusively sponsored by PPG Automotive.

This event will be a private tournament within TopGolf’s online game, to be held Friday, Nov. 20 through Sunday, Dec. 20.


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.


To help raise additional funds for local collision school programs, when paying their $25 registration fee online, golfers will be able to select one of the 90 participating I-CAR volunteer committees, and $20 of their registration fee will be reinvested into collision schools in that specific market.


Ford Performance School has donated two passes, a $4,000 value, that will be awarded to the virtual gofer with the best score at the end of the tournament.


The 90 I-CAR volunteer committees will be promoting this fundraiser not only to their local industry members but also the general public, as the more local virtual golfers that participate, the more funding will be raised for their local collision school programs. Also, with the event being virtual, zero golfing skill is required, and golfers can play from the comfort of their home.


“What a fantastic way to support an important cause," said I-CAR CEO and President John Van Alstyne. "A couple I-CAR Committees worked with CREF to innovate their normal golf outing fundraisers in the face of COVID earlier this year with great success, and the same can be expected here. I-CAR Committees across the U.S. are increasingly focused on supporting career technical schools as our industry seeks more qualified and capable talent. This event will be a fun and easy way to support that goal.”
