Registration Open for CREF 2012 Summer Golf Fundraiser in San Antonio

Registration and event sponsorship is now available for the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s (CREF) 11th annual golf fundraiser event taking place the morning of Thursday, July 19, 2012 in San Antonio. Golfers will enjoy a round of golf at the La Cantera Resort’s The Palmer Course, a championship-class, 18-hole golf course created by golf legend and award-winning course designer Arnold Palmer and the Arnold Palmer Design Company.

As the Education Foundation’s 2011 golf fundraiser sold out four months in advance, industry professionals are encouraged to register for this year’s golf fundraiser early, as it is anticipated to be sold out by early 2012. This fundraiser takes place in conjunction with the CIC and I-CAR industry meetings being held that week in San Antonio, and funds raised through this event assist the Education Foundation in providing support to collision repair students and their schools’ collision programs.

To enhance the day of raising funds for a great cause and networking with industry professionals from around the country, San Antonio-based Mac Haik’s Southway Ford has offered a 2012 Ford F150 FX2 as a hole-in-one prize during the event. Attendees will have the opportunity to drive away with their prize through one lucky shot.

Early-bird individual player registration is $200 per person ($800 foursome team) before March 1, 2012 and $250 per person ($1,000 foursome team) after March 1, 2012. Registration includes 18 holes of golf, cart rental, complimentary beverages/snacks on the course, breakfast, buffet lunch, attendee promotional items and the opportunity to participate in several contests on the course. For those attendees who will be traveling into San Antonio to attend industry meetings that week, complimentary transportation will be provided to and from the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Hotel to the golf course.

This fundraiser event is open to all industry professionals, and registration spaces are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
