The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation held its annual Bob Schoeberl Memorial Golf Tournament at the Spanish Trail Country Club in Las Vegas during the SEMA Show. The funds raised at the tournament, totaling nearly $600,000, will be directed toward the AACF’s mission of providing resources, guidance and financial support to individuals and families within the automotive aftermarket industry who are facing unexpected hardships.
The event brought together nearly 200 golfers from across the industry and more than 100 industry companies, all committed to making a difference in the lives of their colleagues in the automotive aftermarket facing dire circumstances, the organization stated.
“The generosity and unity displayed at the Bob Schoeberl Memorial Golf Tournament are a testament to the industry’s unwavering dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of those in need,” said Joel Ayres, executive director, AACF. “For more than 60 years, AACF has been giving back to those who give so much to the automotive aftermarket industry. The momentum from our recent golf tournament and our very successful board meeting, coupled with our ongoing commitment, will continue to propel us forward and drive us to have an even larger impact.”
