In late 1988, I was hired by ABC in Rochester. About the same time my family started J & J Parade Floats and it’s been a match made in heaven ever since.
Donating a float to ABC for Rochesterfest has allowed many individuals share with the community what we are all about at ABC. It’s been a win-win for both ABC and the business. Each year one almost has to do a rock, paper, scissors to see who gets to drive the ABC float. Why? The friends I’ve had driven when I was walker with the group or unavailable love to see the smiles and pride each person carries. For me personally I love working with the parade – the Monday after there are individuals wanting to know if there will be a float for next year and can they be in it.
The float donation may not seem a lot, but it has allowed my family a way to give to ABC. Keep an eye out for ABC at the RochesterFest Parade on June 29th this year!
