CHARLTON — Despite not being in attendance at the event, Commerce Insurance employee Buffie Nault won a 2010 Toyota Camry through a raffle at the Spring Advisory Meeting at Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School Wednesday, March 30.

In January, Commerce Insurance donated two totaled cars, a 2010 Toyota Camry and a 2010 Toyota Corolla, to the auto collision repair shop at Bay Path. The $20,000 that was raised from the raffle went toward purchasing lights for the school's football field.

"There is so much going on at Bay Path every day that I think I would be bored if I worked at a regular high school," joked Bay Path Vocational Director Donald Montville when addressing the crowd. "There are so many that do a lot for the school and donate a lot, but I'd like to focus on two partnerships tonight. First, a partner that's been with us for many years, United Lens. Second, our new partner, Commerce Insurance. It is so important for us to function in vocational education with the help and aid of these partnerships."

Montville's first encounter with United Lens came in 1995 when they became involved in the school's robotics program. Through donations of supplies and money, they "made it happen."
