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


“PPG is proud to continue supporting CREF’s efforts to help collision programs, students and instructors, and this is a creative way to get not only the industry but general public supporting their local schools," said Tom Wolf, CREF Board of Trustees chair and PPG Automotive Refinish director of business development. "While we are limited on the number of golfers that attend our annual CREF summer golf fundraiser, this virtual event allows for thousands to participate, knowing that their registration fee will be reinvested back into their local schools.”


“We are excited about how this one event will bring together 90 I-CAR volunteer committees nationwide and through their local promotion of the event, the more support can be raised for collision schools," said CREF Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode. "As collision instructors and students need the industry’s support now more than ever, we didn’t want the fact that in-person fundraisers not being possible to stop us from coming together for the future professionals of the industry.”


Registration is now open online. Industry members not located near one of the participating I-CAR Volunteer Committees can select “CREF General Fund” when registering, and their registration fee will help CREF collision school programs, instructors and students nationwide.


Registrants can download the free TopGolf online game to their phone, tablet or desktop and start practicing their virtual golf swing prior to the Nov. 20 tee-off, when registered players will be given instructions on how to access the private in-game tournament.


Questions regarding the fundraiser can be directed to Eckenrode at Brandon.Eckenrode@edfoundation.org.
