CARSTAR franchise partners, vendors and insurance leaders from both Canada and the U.S. came together at the CARSTAR Conference 2022 and raised an astonishing $100,000 for cystic fibrosis research, care and advocacy.
Throughout the CARSTAR Conference 2022, attendees had various opportunities to donate to its charitable cause. Proceeds were raised from selling CARSTAR branded socks, participating in the charity walk, bids on cystic fibrosis families’ special artwork, rides on the mechanical bull and song requests all went towards fighting cystic fibrosis (CF). The CARSTAR family achieved their goal of raising $25,000 before the closing CARSTAR Awards and Gala dinner.
