The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) awarded a total of $5,000 to 10 lucky attendees ($500 each) who were randomly selected throughout the weekend to win funds toward a purchase at the association’s flagship event.

“I am glad we were able to give back to the people who came out and supported the show,” said Jerry McNee, president of AASP/NJ. “I’m sure it was a pleasant surprise for many who came out to see all the tools, equipment and training offered and wound up being a winner. It was a nice pat on the back for them.”

First-time NORTHEAST attendee Kristin Brucker said she was just shocked when she happened to glance at her phone which alerted her that she had won $500 NORTHEAST Dollars. Brucker attended the show with her boyfriend, Sal Petraccaro (Bridgewater Collision), who was on the hunt for diagnostic tools and a battery tester. Upon finding out she had won, the couple shared in the excitement, and she immediately told him to “go shopping.” Petraccaro purchased the items he needed from Eppy’s Tools and Equipment Warehouse.

“Sal was very pleased, and I was so excited to have won,” said Brucker. “I never win anything. This was my first time at the show, and I thought it was very well put together. Sal attended in the past, and he was also very impressed with this year’s show.”

Added Eppy’s President Mike Alcomo, “I thought it was a great idea. Three of the winners made purchases at our booth, and they all had a great time with it. When you win something like that, it’s something you’ll never forget.”

Victor Haberski (Son’s Collision Centers, Garwood) was another surprised NORTHEAST Dollar winner. He admits learning about the contest after receiving the voice message notifying him that he had won.

“I used my $500 to purchase a whole set of GuniWheels,” said Haberski. “My shop is high volume, and we need a lot of extra wheels. I’ve used them before, and they are exactly what I needed for my shop, so this really worked out fine.”

Plans are underway for NORTHEAST 2023, scheduled for March 17-19, 2023 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, N.J.
