SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Barrett-Jackson, The World's Greatest Collector Car Auctions™, has always had a large charitable focus since its first auction in 1971, and this year was no different. Barrett-Jackson has worked to provide a platform for consignors and charitable causes to align and raise funds. The 2014 Scottsdale car auction sold 14 cars and experiences for charity, which raised more than $4.4 million to benefit a variety of charity and noble causes. Barrett-Jackson continued its strong philanthropic efforts, working side-by-side with auto industry and motorsports to raise money for local and national charities. One-hundred percent of the proceeds raised by Barrett-Jackson go directly to the charity.
The Opening Night Gala kicked off an incredible week of charity auctions items, which included a Billy Baldwin auction of the ultimate 2015 Super Bowl package with all proceeds benefiting the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund as well as a 1987 Oldsmobile Firenza, Warren Johnson's NHRA Pro Stock Racecar, that was auctioned with all proceeds benefiting the Darrell Gwynn Foundation. In total, the Opening Night Gala raised $160,000.
"Barrett-Jackson has a strong legacy of raising money for local and national charities," said Craig Jackson, Chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. "Whether it's Lot #3001, a 2013 Ford Mustang 2 Door Coup, and Lot #3005, a 1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst Coupe, both to benefit the Barrett-Jackson Cancer Research Fund at TGen, or Lot #3004 a 2013 Ford Fusion NASCAR Race Car benefiting the NASCAR Foundation or the lots supporting the Armed Forces Foundation, the vehicles that crossed the block to benefit charities continue Barrett-Jackson's long tradition of making a difference. We are proud to do what we can to help those in need."
In addition, Barrett-Jackson's Gene Simmons-endorsed Lot #3006 a 1956 Ford F-100 Custom Shelby truck to benefit The Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan Foundation, raising $450,000.
Adding to its legacy of giving back to the armed forces, Barrett-Jackson offered a unique part of military history by packaging a Lot #3008 1959 Cessna L-19E Airplane and Lot #3008.1 a 1958 Dodge M37 Military Truck to bidders. The 1959 model L-19E Bird Dog is being donated by Cessna Aircraft Company with special thanks to experts at Kansas Aircraft Corporation, responsible for sourcing the plane. Proceeds from the sale of the package benefited the Armed Forces Foundation and their ongoing efforts to assist active-duty and retired military personnel.
"Supporting the men and woman of the armed forces is something that I am very proud of," said Steve Davis, President of Barrett-Jackson. "We are honored to have this platform to celebrate these men and woman and acknowledge their sacrifices."
