The ninth annual ABCO Boston Expo & Vocational Field Day took place Dec. 10, 2015, along with the Holiday Party at ABCO’s Somerville, Massachusetts, branch. More than 200 students from 10 vocational schools and more than 150 contractors joined in the festivities. They were treated to lunch, giveaways, and an Expo featuring 20-plus major manufacturers.

Every rep donated equipment or tools to each school and to the students. Additionally, three business owners shared their vast knowledge with students about the industry, said Peter Donati, regional vice president for ABCO.

To continue the giving, a raffle was held to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of ABCO’s customers and manufacturer partners, more than $7,500 was raised again this year. The amount is significant because it’s enough to grant one wish for a child with a life-threatening illness.
