On Monday, September 18, many of the local industry's finest gathered together at the beautiful Colonia Country Club for the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ)'s 13th Annual Lou Scoras Memorial Golf Outing. Despite the cloudy day, participants honored one of the association's most beloved members, while enjoying lunch, dinner and a day of golf.
Shop owners, technicians, vendors and more attended the fundraiser to socialize, enjoy themselves, and raise money for a scholarship in honor of the outing's namesake. Industry members not only attended the outing, but were generous in supporting the event through both prize and hole sponsorships.
"We are so thankful to everyone who took the time from a work day to come out here and honor Lou's memory," said AASP/NJ President Jeff McDowell. "Whether they attend or donate, it is truly heartwarming to see so many people come together for such a good cause."
Following lunch and a day on the golf course, guests were treated to a cocktail reception and dinner where they partook in a 50/50 drawing and an unprecedented prize raffle. The dinner was hosted by Joe Amato Sr. of The Amato Agency.
"As emotional as this day is for those of us who knew and worked with
Lou, it's always great to see the rousing support of the industry at events like this,"
said AASP/NJ Executive Director Charles Bryant. "We appreciate all those in attendance, as well as all of the companies who helped fund the outing. When doing business, I cannot urge you enough to look to these sponsors first."
