Crown Point, Ind.—CARSTAR Liss Auto Body raised $20,000 at its 15th Annual Charity Golf Outing benefiting Make-A-Wish of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and the greater Indiana region raising $20,000 for the cause.
The event, held at White Hawk Country Club, Aug. 6, had more than 30 sponsors and 72 golf participants. Corporate sponsorships included BASF, the Behling Family, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, First Team, Hammond Optimist, Horizon Bank, National Coating Systems, People’s Bank, and United Services.
“The outpouring of support from the Northwest Indiana community is overwhelming and we are honored to continue our great partnership with CARSTAR Liss Auto Body,” said Amy Nelson, senior director of Development, Make-A-Wish.
Two “wish” recipients will be selected from the northwest Indiana area. Xavier, a 12-year-old from Hobart, was the first recipient selected, who originally wished to golf in California. Due to Covid-19 and travel restrictions, his “wish” was modified. Xavier instead asked for a small fishing boat, so he and his family would have the opportunity to escape his difficult medical routines.
“Holding a golf outing during these unprecedented times was a tough decision, however, we decided to continue supporting this great cause and we are so glad we did,” said Charlotte Liss, CARSTAR Liss Auto Body Marketing Manager. “We modified the outing to keep everyone safe and forged forward creating astounding results. We are blessed to have some amazing business partners as well as friends and we deeply appreciate those that have helped us make this all possible.”
Over the past 15 years, CARSTAR Liss Auto Body has donated over $200,000.00 to Make-A-Wish for granting wishes in northwest Indiana.
