CARSTAR CHICAGOLAND BUSINESS GROUP HELPS RAISE MORE THAN $20,000 FOR ILLINOIS CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL
The CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group has a long history of giving back to their community. Recently, the group of 19 CARSTAR shops helped to
raise more than $20,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Illinois with their participation in the Country Financial Charity Golf Outing. This was their first year as a sponsor of the event, which has been around for 14 years.
The group was the hole sponsor for the outing’s longest drive contest, where each of the 144 golfers on hand showed off their skills for the top honor. The CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group made their hole a fun stop for the participants by passing out water, soda, snacks, bottle openers and golf tees.
In addition to the business group’s sponsorship of the event, CARSTAR Yorkville sponsored a foursome to play in the tournament, with employees from Dentsmart Paintless Dent Repair as their special guests.
“The Children’s Hospital of Illinois is such a great charity,” said Lou Santiago, marketing specialist for the CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group. “Country Financial has been doing this event for 14 years. When they asked us to sponsor a hole, we jumped at the opportunity. It turned out to be a great course, a beautiful day and all for a great cause.”
