AASP-MN 2015 Golf Outing and PAC Fundraiser

AASP-MN held their 21st Annual Golf Outing on Tuesday, June 16 at the Tartan Park Gold Course in Lake Elmo, MN. A lovely day of golfing and networking was enjoyed by 123 industry participants as well as 28 event sponsors. Executive Director Judell Anderson noted, "Competition was fierce with two teams logging a final score of 62 (10 under par)."


A tiebreaker determined the winners to be the team from Hopkins Auto Body, represented by Jerald Stiele, Dave Williams, Spencer Smith of Smith Import Motors, and Matt Koehler from Knoll Ontrack. The second place team consisted of Jim Dow and Randy Johnson from LKQ/Keystone as well as Laura and Jesse Jacobson of Heppner's Auto Body. 

During the event, the association also hosted a fundraiser to support their Political Action Committee (PAC), raising $750 for the fund. Anderson noted, "AASP-MN's PAC fund provides access and resources to legislators who support the automotive service industry and advocate its positions.
