Summer Tailgating in Louisiana

The staff of Louisiana's 1st Choice Auction Auction is basking in the success of another highly popular Lagniappe* sale (Cajun French for a little something extra) in July, reports John Poteet,. LAFCAA's owner and managing partner.

"A huge thank you to our dealer base and auction team for making our 2017 Lagniappe Sale a tremendous success," says Poteet.  "It was a great day at the auction, with a terrific lineup of cars and trucks, and lots of prizes to go around.  Dealers received free shirts, free 28-day floats and free root beer floats. One lucky dealer won $500 as another won a 2 night vacation package."

"Over 100 dealers won prizes and received our signature service," said Poteet.  "We are thankful to everyone who chooses to make us their 1st choice!

The auction shifts gears to its football-themed Tailgate Event set for August 22. The summer months are traditionally slow in the auto industry, but the fun events at this southern auction keep auction day an exciting draw for their customers. This duo of events has proven that summers at Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction are a win/win for the car dealers who participate. 

"The addition of the Tailgate Event sale to our calendar has attracted a great buying base and has really generated a lot of buzz in our region. We create a fun, thriving atmosphere here and continue to set the bar for premier events," commented Assistant General Manager, Jacob Warren. 

The Tailgate Event consists of 900+ units featuring ARI, CPS and several large dealer groups. Themed prizes valued at $10,000 will be awarded to lucky buyers. 

Owner John Poteet describes the event as "a ramped up Tailgate party with plenty of cars for our buyers." 

"Football in Louisiana is eagerly anticipated and we love our gridiron heroes," says Poteet.

 In that regard, Louisiana's 1st Choice Auto Auction has brought in several football stars for past events, including Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly and Pro Bowl running back Deuce McAllister. This year's event will feature 2003 NCAA and 2009 Super Bowl champion wide receiver, Devery Henderson, who will mingle with buyers and provide several opportunities for photos and autographs for the dealers attending the event.

Assistant General Manager Matthew Alombro comments that "the auction is bursting with excitement for this event as everyone eagerly anticipates the kick-off of football season and a chance to meet a football great."
