The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced it is taking its show on the road, hosting the Collision Industry Regional Golf Fundraiser in Dallas, Texas, on April 7th at the Texas Star Golf Course. The event is being held to provide collision repair businesses and professionals in the southwest an opportunity to meet and network with peers while supporting NABC’s image-enhancing community initiatives.
Proceeds from the golf event, with Enterprise Rent-a-Car as presenting sponsor, will help fund member programs including Recycled Rides, First Responder Emergency Extrication (FREE) and the Distracted Driving Initiative.
To showcase NABC’s Recycled Rides program, three vehicles donated by State Farm and Allstate and repaired by NABC Diamond members Berkshire Hathaway Automotive, Caliber Collision and Service King will be presented to three local Dallas-area families in need.
“We have heard from businesses and individuals across the country who welcome the opportunity to network and collaborate on a local level with colleagues toward a common goal to promote the professionalism and integrity of the collision repair industry,” said Keith Egan of RW Mallon Auto Paint and Equipment and chairman of NABC’s Fundraising committee. “Our goal in hosting regional golf events is to provide NABC members and supporters a fun, casual way to build and enhance relationships while we demonstrate our community service projects, such as Recycled Rides, and showcase the professionals in our industry.”
Added Darren Huggins, national collision director of Berkshire Hathaway Automotive and chair of the Dallas golf fundraiser, “The regional fundraiser also provides us with the opportunity to give back to the communities in which we live and work. I am proud and appreciative of the commitment and generosity of so many of our colleagues in the collision industry who are stepping up to sponsor and participate in this southwest regional fundraiser to raise funds for our community service programs.”
A number of sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses to show their support. The registration fee is $150 for individual players and $600 for a foursome. Online player registration and sponsor information is available at www.NationalAutoBodyCouncil.org.
