Dan Brown named ” Tradesperson of the Year” 2011

WD-40, Rebuilding Together and 'On the House'
Honor Deserving Trade Pro

WD-40® is an essential tool in any toolbox and has been used by trade professionals to get the job done for more than 50 years. Now, WD-40 is returning the favor by helping send one deserving tradesperson to Super Bowl XLV in Dallas!

WD-40, in partnership with Rebuilding Together®, "On The House with the Carey Brothers" and others, has just completed its search to find the Rebuilding Together Tradesperson of the Year– a skilled trade professional who gives back to the community and adds value to his or her trade industry. After months of preparation, hundreds of nominations, thousands of online votes and a rigorous judging process, the grand-prize winner has finally been selected.

And the winner is… Dan Brown, a contractor with D. Benjamin Brown Construction in New Jersey! Dan has worked with the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, a nonprofit homeless shelter, for 20 years, and has been instrumental in teaching construction trades to young people throughout his community. For his great work, he will receive a Super Bowl getaway for two, including air travel, lodging, game tickets and $500 in cash, $15,000 worth of products and tools courtesy of WD-40 and Sears Blue Tool Crew, and appear as a guest co-host on "On the House with the Carey Brothers." Using his expert knowledge, Dan will help Morris, James and Rebecca answer listener questions and discuss why community activism is so important.

Five runner-up finalists will each receive $2,500 worth of tools and products, courtesy of Sears Blue Tool Crew and WD-40: Bill Curry, carpenter; William Watts, electrician; David Liszeski, HVAC/plumber, Angelo Balassone, painter; and Steve Gotschi, roofer. Thank you to all who nominated promoted and voted for these great individuals who have made a positive difference in their industries and in their communities, and congratulations to all of the winners!
