Golfers played at the inaugural Caliber Classic to raise nearly $60,000 to help the American Heart Association fight heart disease.
Proceeds from the golf tournament hosted by Caliber Collision at The Tribute at The Colony Golf Club will go toward a $4 million fundraising goal for the 2016 Côtes du Coeur event series, a fundraising campaign held annually in Dallas to benefit the American Heart Association. The event series culminated May 14th with a wine and dinner gala at the Dallas Omni Hotel.
The 2016 Côtes du Coeur fundraiser is chaired by Caliber Collision CEO Steve Grimshaw and his wife Melissa, who both have been supporting the American Heart Association for over 10 years. Grimshaw has served on the board of the American Heart Association for the past two years.
“It’s my honor and privilege to serve as chair of this year’s Côtes du Coeur,” said Grimshaw. “Caliber Collision is dedicated to restoring the rhythm of lives in every community we serve. I am humbled and grateful to all of our many colleagues, partners and teammates at Caliber Collision who have so generously stepped up to pledge their support to the American Heart Association.”
