Collision repair is about people helping people
who find themselves in a difficult situation, often through no fault of their own. It’s not just about putting cars back together — it’s about making people whole again. The collision repair community — including body shops, paint, parts, equipment and insurance companies — has been doing this for a long time.
And sometimes, the collision industry goes above and beyond the call of duty to make things a little bit brighter for those less fortunate. This section honors the shops and suppliers that take that additional step.

CARSTAR Cincinnati Raises $14,000 for Fisher House
The CARSTAR Cincinnati Business Group hosted its 12th annual Golf Outing at TPC River’s Bend on Monday, August 25th, with the proceeds benefiting the Fisher House Foundation. The Fisher House is “a home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. There are 62 Fisher Houses in operation on 23 military installations and 23 VA Medical Centers with four in the Cincinnati area.
The event, which raised over $14,000, honored the sacrifice of our military men and women. The outing opened in true American style, with skydivers delivering the American flag, a B-25 flyover, the playing of Taps to honor fallen soldiers, and a performance of the National Anthem.
SFC (retired) Michael Schlitz, a double amputee who suffered burns over 85 percent of his body while fighting in Iraq, was in attendance. Schlitz took part in the opening ceremonies, and gave a speech at the awards dinner, where this year’s contribution was made to the Fisher House Foundation
