The seventh annual Collision Industry Foundation (CIF) Gala Fundraiser was held on January 12, 2017 in Palm Springs, California. The foundation again hosted a lively cocktail party, complete with Asian Fare hors d’oeurves and delicious cocktails at the renowned Lulu California Bistro.
Over 100 people from the industry attended the fun event. The gala guests were able to participate in a raffle and silent auction featuring many items. Items were donated by companies and individuals and included high-end electronics, custom art work, Chip Foose signed pictures, pin stripe painted pedal car bodies, a NASCAR package as well as I-CAR and AMI training classes.
The gala was extremely successful and CIF was able to raise approximately $50,000. The major focus of the foundation’s support is Collision Industry Relief Fund, which helps collision repair professionals who have lost their livelihoods from a natural disaster or other catastrophe.
Thank you to those industry guests that joined the gala this year.
