Attendees from the collision industry set new records for the fun event. The gala guests were able to participate in a raffle and silent auction featuring many desirable items which were donated by companies and individuals. Items included high-end electronics from Apple® and Bose®, custom art work, a Chip Foose-signed picture, a NASCAR® package as well as vouchers for I-CAR and AMI training classes. The gala was successful in raising funds for the mission of CIF. The foundation's major focus has been the Collision Industry Relief Fund to assist collision repair professionals who have lost their livelihoods from a natural disaster or other catastrophe. Most recently benefiting from this were victims from the wildfires in California.
