NABC™ Cancels St. Louis Golf Fundraiser, In-Person Board Meeting

In a letter to National Auto Body Council (NABC) members, the organization's leadership announced the cancellation of a golf fundraiser and in-person board meeting, both scheduled in September, due to continued travel restrictions, state and local rules and quarantines.

The NABC St. Louis Pars for Cars Golf Fundraiser was set for Sept. 14 at Boone Valley Golf Club in St. Louis.


The in-person board meeting, scheduled for Sept. 15, will now be a virtual closed board meeting, sometime in September.
"We hope that we will soon return to our new normal daily lives and resume serving our members, partners and communities," the letter said. "We plan to host an event at Boone Valley in St. Louis in 2021."


Those who had already signed up to play or sponsor the golf fundraiser should advise NABC if they want to apply that payment toward a future event, contribute it as a donation to community initiatives or be sent a refund.
The letter said the NABC Recycled Rides® program has three vehicles to present this fall to three deserving veterans in St. Louis, thanks to vehicle donors GEICO and Farmers Insurance, and collision repair partners Car Craft Auto Body, CARSTAR Wentzille and Schaefer Auto Body.


"We are working to determine dates for presenting these vehicles to these individuals and their families," the letter said.


"During these times, the National Auto Body Council is still working hard for you, looking at how we can continue our focus on Changing and Saving Lives Every Day," the letter said. "We are working to reschedule many NABC Recycled Rides presentations, NABC F.R.E.E. programs and NABC DDI education events with CREF for later this year. We are also planning with our NABC members for many more events as we emerge from this challenge."


The letter was signed by Chairman Darren Huggins, President and CEO Bill Garoutte and fundraising committee co-chairs Gerry Poirier and Liz Stein.
