The Auto Auction of New England (AANE) is enjoying a milestone this year: 20 years of auction action. To celebrate, the auction has spent the summer showing its appreciation to all of its partners and employees.
"We can't help but be grateful for the spectacular summer we are having too," said Steve Deluca, AANE general manager. "Our summers may be short, but New Englanders know how to make the most of every opportunity to celebrate."
In June, ANNE celebrated with a Dealer Appreciation and Classic Car Sale. More than 1,200 units crossed the block that day, and the more than 900 dealers in attendance were treated to a steak and lobster dinner followed by a raffle with more than $10,000 in prizes.
"It was a beautiful day and a great event," said DeLuca. "Our goal was to sell cars, as always, but we also wanted to make sure every dealer who came to the sale that day left with a full stomach, a commemorative gift and a smile. The entire staff worked tirelessly to keep all the events running smoothly, and a great time was had by all."
