In addition to an array of lunch items, the day also included a wealth of entertainment. Chauffeur Appreciation Day mainstay Sullivan Tire was once again on hand for attendees to win all kinds of prizes from their spinning wheel, Dom DiNardo and his band provided rousing live musical accompaniment, and there were plenty of raffles and games to be enjoyed, too.
