Collision repair school to hold Sept. 9 golfing fundraiser

September 3, 2021
Chicago’s Kennedy-King College, one of a handful of schools in the Chicago market with collision repair curricula, will benefit from money raised at a golf fundraiser, 6-9 p.m. Sept. 9 at Topgolf in Schaumburg.
The outing is being coordinated by the Collision Repair Education Foundation, which assists secondary and post-secondary collision repair training programs. CREF is based in Hoffman Estates.
An unlimited buffet and beer, wine and soda await golfers for $150 each. Networking guests cost $75 each. Sponsorships also are available ranging from $500 to $5,000. Contact Brandon Eckenrode, managing director for CREF, at (312) 231-0258 and
Money raised during the networking event will enable Kennedy-King’s collision program to buy needed tools, equipment and supplies to help prepare students for entry-level industry employment. College staff, Kennedy-King collision students, and other guests are expected to participate.
"Across the country, this industry is facing an issue of an aging workforce and desperate need for entry-level staff. This focused effort to support Kennedy-King College’s collision program will help current and future students in their collision program," Eckenrode said.
