Members of the America’s Auto Auction (AAA) corporate team attended the sale at their newly branded America’s Auto Auction Erie earlier this month, as the auction celebrated its 76th anniversary and introduced their dealers to the auction’s new name.
The Corry Auto Dealers Exchange will now be known as America’s Auto Auction Erie, based in Corry, Pennsylvania. Along with lanes full of cars, food and giveaways, dealers from surrounding states were witness to the inaugural sale of the new America’s AA Erie, one of the 16 XLerate Group auctions adopting the name and logo of AAA.
Another event folded into the anniversary celebration was the annual benefit for Barber National Institute (BNI), an organization that proves services to children and adults with autism, intellectual disabilities, or behavioral and health challenges. For every vehicle purchased during the sale, the auction donated $5 to BNI on behalf of their dealers and pledged to match this donation during the 76th Anniversary Sale.
“We believe in taking care of our community, and we are proud of the money we’ve raised for Barber National Institute through the years,” said general manager Kerri Rotunda in a news release. “This charity event allows us to join with our dealers in giving support to a very important community program, and this year we raised over $1,750.”
