YANG’s Top Golf Event Raises Nearly $9,000 for Charity

The industry fundraiser took place in August and September at eight Top Golf locations across the country.

The Young Auto Care Network Group (YANG), an under-40 community of the Auto Care Association, recently hosted its second Top Golf industry fundraiser in support of the Automotive Aftermarket Charitable Foundation (AACF). The event took place this year in August and September, at eight Top Golf locations across the country. Following the pandemic’s effects on businesses and the economy in 2020, YANG said it set out to rally and support those within the auto care industry finding themselves in difficult circumstances.

YANG has raised over $20,000 in support of AACF since last year.

The 2022 YANG Top Golf fundraiser event locations included:

  • Atlanta, Ga.
  • Dallas, Texas
  • Denver, Colo.
  • Detroit, Mich.
  • Houston, Texas
  • Long Island, N.Y.
  • Omaha, Neb.
  • Philadelphia, Pa.

The eight locations brought in 167 attendees, each donating a minimum of $22 toward the charity fund for AACF. In addition to individual donations, the event received the support of sponsoring Auto Care Association member companies, raising a total of $8,921 for the AACF, YANG announced.

“We are proud of the young professionals of our industry coming together in support of those in need,” said Cotter Collins, chair, YANG. “This is what the YANG community is all about: getting involved and finding opportunities to better the industry. YANG members give me confidence that the aftermarket’s future is in great hands, as evidenced by the initiative and generosity we see from them year after year.”

The YANG Top Golf charity event was sponsored by:

  • Akebono Brake Experts
  • Arnold Motor Supply
  • Dorman
  • East Penn
  • Global Parts Distributors, Inc.
  • Lisle Corporation
  • Parts Authority
  • Shop Squad
  • XL Parts
