“Barrett-Jackson and the collector car hobby really stepped up for charity in Scottsdale,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We helped raise millions of dollars through the sale of nine charity vehicles, which included a record number of VIN 001 and first production models ever offered at auction. We’re grateful to our partners at Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford and GMC chose to leverage the Barrett-Jackson stage and give collectors the opportunity to own a piece of history and also benefit critical organizations.
