During my 40+ year career, I have been fortunate to be associated with some of our sponsors and advertisers in various ways. If and when you hear me talk about them or endorse them, there’s a reason…because I believe they’re great partners that I’ve personally done business with. Definitely top of the list for me would be Jersey Mike’s and Causeway Lincoln and again they had a huge impact locally and across the country.
MIKE’S JERSEY the recent “Month of Giving” raised the colossal sum of $20 million for the Special Olympics USA Games in Orlando, Florida. Throughout the month, at their more than 2,000 locations across the country, customers donated to the cause and it peaked on March 30.and when the sub-giant donated ALL sales from each franchise on their annual “Donation Day”. This year’s total was by far a record and will help Special Olympics athletes from June 5-12 with travel and more. Of course, we know that Jersey Mike’s started here in Ocean County when Peter Cancro, then 17, bought what was then Mike’s Subs in Point Pleasant. I’ve worked with them for years and not only do they make great subs, they do so much for other people.
LINCOLN PATHWAY is part of the Causeway family of dealerships that are highly visible on Route 72 in Manahawkin. I was their spokesperson for years due to a long relationship with founder Dave Wintrode who started it all over 50 years ago. The list of charitable causes they have supported over the years if a mile long and recently they created CAUSEWAY CAREes like is part of the Wintrode Family Foundation. They serve various non-profit, local and community organizations in Ocean County through financial donations, scholarship opportunities, vehicle giveaways, event sponsorships and more, including the active participation and volunteering.

I am proud to work with both of these companies and look forward to doing so for many years to come.
