Collision Repair Education Foundation Announces July Online Virtual Golf Fundraiser

Golfing and online game enthusiasts around the globe are invited to join the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) "fore" its first virtual golf fundraiser, Saturday, July 25. 

The online event will take the place of the annual CREF summer golf outing, which was scheduled in Philadelphia along with other industry meetings.


Through a $25 donation, players will take part in golfing 18 holes using TopGolf's online game, and the first 150 to register will receive a CREF attendee bag with promotional items.


Thousands of dollars in prizes and promotional giveaways will be randomly awarded to players throughout the day of the event. Funds raised through the event will support CREF's efforts to assist high school and college collision programs across the country.


Those interested in participating can:


  • Register online now through CREF, and make the requested $25 tax-deductible donation.
  • Download the free TopGolf WGT Golf app game to their phone, tablet or computer.
  • Create a free player profile and start practicing their online golf swing between now and July 25.


"Even though the industry couldn't gather at our annual golf fundraiser, we wanted to get creative in organizing something interactive and fun that requires zero golf skill and you could participate from the comfort of your home," CREF Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode noted. "Also, where our physical golf events are limited on the number of golfers, through this opportunity we could have thousands of people participate from around the globe and help us in raising additional funds for high school and college collision programs. Please considering joining us 'FORE' a great cause."

  • All registered players will be emailed that morning with instructions on which specific virtual TopGolf course to play for the event.
