Federated‘s recent tailgate reception, dubbed the "Best Trucking Tailgate Party Ever" at AAPEX, not only showcased the Federated Ultimate Service Truck as the centerpiece of the evening’s activities, but it also featured some big bucks as well.
As part of the evening’s festivities, Federated CEO Rusty Bishop presented a check for $145,000 to Lt. Gen. Pete Osman, president and CEO of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. The check was presented to Osman in front of hundreds of guests, including NASCAR legend Kenny Schrader, and the guys who modified the Federated Ultimate Service Truck, Matt Steele and Bruno Massel, hosts of the Great American Country (GAC) Network show "Truck U."
“We want to thank everyone who attended our Best Trucking Tailgate Party Ever, especially our members, manufacturing partners and honored guests,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president of Federated Auto Parts. “It was especially gratifying for everyone at Federated to be able to present a donation for Toys for Toys to Lt. Gen. Osman.”
