For the tenth straight year, crowds gathered at the Florida Tow Show to see if they were going to drive away as the owner of a new 2019MY Hino Model 258ALP with a Miller Industries Chevron Carrier. The truck is part of a raffle that supports The Professional Wreckers of Florida (PWOF) Education and Legislation Programs.
Gary Mickiewciz, Eastern Region Sales Vice President for Hino Trucks addressed the anxious crowd, “This is one of the best functions we have because we are changing someone’s life today and giving one lucky tower a new 2019MY truck to add to their business. We appreciate the risks that tow truck drivers take every day and this is one way of saying thank you.”
This year’s winners are Lynn and Sheronda Hope of Lynn Hope Towing LLC of Greeneville, Tennessee. When asked, who was the first person they called after the win, Lynn replied, “I didn’t have to call anyone — they called me!” In business for 19 years, the Hopes have attended the Florida Tow show for the past 18 years and buy $100 in raffle tickets every year. This year paid off as their fleet of 12 grew to 13.
“We look forward to the excitement of this event every year at the Florida Tow Show and we’re proud of our partnership with Hino Trucks over the past ten years to make it a success. It’s always a great feeling to see the look on the winner’s face when their name is chosen,” added Todd Harless Marketing Manager for Miller Industries.
