Student techs foundation to hold fundraiser Sept. 18

September 11, 2015
As a follow-up to the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s inaugural "Cars, Careers, & Celebrities" event, which last year raised more than $200,000, the foundation will hold the event’s second edition Sept. 18 at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet.
The event takes place in conjunction with the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup taking place that weekend, and will bring together hundreds of high school and college collision students, industry members, and sponsors. High school and college collision students from Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas, and Michigan are anticipated to participate in this event, and that list is expected to grow by the event date. 
ABRA Auto Body & Glass will participate as the first Diamond Level sponsor and the Collision Repair Education Foundation encourages all industry members to participate to not only showcase the various members of the industry to the attending students but also to help raise additional funds to assist collision school programs.
This event will be available at no charge for high school and college collision students, instructors, and administrators. The Collision Repair Education Foundation is requesting a $100 donation per individual industry member to attend. 
Admission includes a trade show, grandstand admission to that day’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, Fan Zone Pit Pass, food/beverages, raffles, and VIP access opportunities for select attendees. 
For full details, call Brandon Eckenrode, development director at the Collision Repair Education Foundation, at (847) 463-5244.
