Monday's A+ Award of the Day
Attorney Willie Gary of Fort Pierce, Florida, gets the A+ Award of the Day.
And, by association, all lawyers get a pass today on the telling of any lawyer jokes! This is only a one-day pass though! Tomorrow, they will be fair game again! :)
Last Wednesday, Willie Gary and radio station X102.3 teamed up to give away thousands of gallons of free fuel to motorists. Cars snaked through the parking lot and out onto the street in front of the WalMart where the gas was given away.
Gary originally planned to give away 102 vouchers for gas, but ended up passing out more than 400!
It took several hours to get everyone through the line and off with their full tanks.
Mr. Gary said, “Just to help someone get gas to go to work, go pick up the kids or take the kids to school, and I have people saying to me, ‘I’ll be able to get my kids out of school tomorrow,’” Gary said. “You know it makes you feel good.”
Gary’s firm pumped 2,162 gallons of regular unleaded gas, worth more than $10,000.
What a great, positive, encouraging story! A+ Mr. Gary, A+
