Fergus, Ontario -- September 22, 2016 -- When you've got a new facility, it's only natural that you want to show it off. CSN-Hutten Collision Centre held an open house recently to give the public a first-hand opportunity to see a modern collision repair centre.
CSN-Hutten Collision Centre is located in Fergus, Ont., and also used the open house as an opportunity to hold a charity barbecue to raise funds for a good cause. Groves Memorial Community Hospital currently has a campaign to raise funds for a new facility.
"Hutten sees the need to support a good cause like this as Groves Hospital has a very vital place within our community," says John Hutten, owner of CSN-Hutten Collision Centre.
In addition to the barbecue, crowds were drawn by face painting, a clown making balloon animals for the kids, a "Monster Truck" bouncy castle and race car rides using a full-motion simulator.
In total, the event raised $2,500 for Groves Memorial Community Hospital.
The event was also a great success in terms of attendance. Approximately 800 members of the community came through CSN-Hutten Collision Centre during the event.
Members of industry got a chance to see the new facility at a separate event. For more on this, please see "CSN-Hutten Collision's new facility hosts Grand Opening event."
