Mark Your Calendars! Join AASP/MA on the Green in September!

by Alana Quartuccio

Summer is going fast, and fall will be here before we know it, but that isn’t any reason to think the fun will end anytime soon. In fact, with AASP/MA, the fun is only about to begin!

Mark your calendar for September 13 when AASP/MA once again gathers the automotive community on the green for a full day of golf, networking, social interaction and fun – which is par for the course!

The annual golf outing is one of the Alliance’s biggest fundraisers and most anticipated annual events. It gives members of the auto body world a chance to get away from the daily grind, partake in some leisure time on the golf course in support of
AASP/MA and all their efforts. The Alliance has been working non-stop in support of its proposed legislation to bring long overdue change to the labor reimbursement rate and to reform the ADALB. The work of the Alliance and the momentum they created would not be possible without support gained from events such as this annual fundraiser.

After two very successful outings at the Heritage Country Club in 2021 and 2022, there was no question about the Alliance’s decision to return to the Charlton golf course for the 2023 iteration of the popular event.

All the featured components which have made the event so great over the past few years – including the amazing steak dinner – are on deck once again. The day will lead once again with the popular kick off ball drop contest. This contest is open to all participants, even those who aren’t able to attend the event in person as individually numbered golf balls can be purchased in advance. As the festivities get underway, AASP/MA Executive Director Lucky Papageorg dumps a bucket of the numbered golf balls onto the green. The person who purchased the numbered ball that lands closest to or in the hole walks away $500 richer!

There are chances to win prizes at every turn. Not only are there contests on the green with hole-in-one, closest to the pin and team prizes to be awarded, tons of raffle prizes are donated by supporting members of the auto body community and made possible thanks to generous sponsors. Dozens of super cool items will be raffled off from smart TVs, bluetooth speakers, coolers and more! It’s guaranteed that just about every participant or team will leave with a prize!

If the game is not your sport but you still want to take part, you can join the group for a delicious steak dinner and the awards ceremony. In fact, invite the whole body shop crew down to the course for a meal – it’s a great way to give back to your team!

AASP/MA is always grateful for its strong network of vendor supporters who never cease embracing the opportunity to pitch in and support the event through various sponsorships from Tournament Sponsor, Lunch and Dinner Sponsors, Raffle Sponsors and Tee Sponsors. Hole sponsors will once again receive a commemorative flag featuring their company logo.
