The Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF) will once again host its annual all-industry golf outing to kick off Industry Week in Las Vegas just prior to the start of the AAPEX and SEMA shows.
The event will take place just off The Strip at the Las Vegas Country Club on Monday, Oct. 30 with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. All proceeds help fund the foundation’s work as the industries’ only charitable organization dedicated to helping aftermarket industry workers at their most critical time of need.
“Our Golf Committee is amazing,” said Joel Ayres, director of AACF. “They work tirelessly in a volunteer capacity to organize the biggest and most well-executed golf event our industry has ever known.”
The golf event sells out every year and is organized by a committee consisting of industry leaders.
“The Golf Committee is proud to put forth this effort on behalf of the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation,” said Committee Chairman Andy Dudash. “We’ve had tremendous support from so many wonderful companies across our industry, it’s just an honor to pull it all together for them and to see everybody gather to have a good time in support of a great cause.”
Due to increased awareness and expanded coverage into all facets of the aftermarket industry, the AACF is now helping record numbers of people in need, supporting more cases than ever before. But, as the mission grows and the far-reaching aid expands, so does the need for more contributions and support from our industry, according to the foundation.
“This is the Foundation’s single largest event of the year,” said committee member Lynn Parker, “and it’s a time when industry leaders can gather at a beautiful “outdoor” location in Las Vegas to take a short break from competing in business and put their collective efforts into supporting this great cause.”
In addition to the golf tournament, the event also includes a continental breakfast and award luncheon just prior to and after the golf outing. There’s also a pre-event reception set for 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the Las Vegas Country Club. There’s also a chance to win a new car making a hole-in-one at select par three holes.
The golf outing and all event sponsorship opportunities are open to all industry participants.
