Oakville, Ontario -- December 18, 2016 -- The production area of Budds' Collision Services was packed for the company’s annual Pig Roast and Christmas party. In addition to great food and great company, this year’s event also served as the official launch of the Sam Piercey Foundation, supporting young collision repair apprentices in the industry.
The foundation is in honour of the late Sam Piercey, co-owner of Budds', frequent Collision Repair magazine columnist and one of the collision repair industry’s most well-known and outspoken advocates. He passed away July 24, 2016, as a result of complications arising due to leukemia.
This yearly event is always attended by a wide cross-section of the industry, with plenty of representation from insurers and vendors. Repairers are particularly well represented, with many attending from the local area and beyond.
We don’t have the final tally yet for the amount of money raised for the foundation, but it was successful, judging by the bulging donation box at the front entrance.
