On Friday evening at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction Florida Governor Ron DeSantis helped raise $1.76 Million to support relief in Ukraine.
A 2009 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake from the George Shinn Collection and a 1986 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Indy Pace Car from Mark Pieloch’s American Muscle Car Museum Collection sold for $1 million to Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports.
George and Megan Shinn and Mark and Tetiana Pieloch each added $100,000 to the hammer price. Craig and Carolyn Jackson as well as Steve and Janie Davis matched the donation, which was also duplicated by John Staluppi, John Rosatti and Sam Pack, with Michelle Mauzy adding $50,000. Additional donations brought the total to $1,760,000.
The $1.76 million donation will benefit Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse and humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine.
“The generosity of Barrett-Jackson’s customers overwhelms me,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “Freedom is priceless, but it’s not free.”
Throughout the second day of the auction a diverse selection of collector cars crossed the stage with top hammer prices. Friday’s top sellers shows the diverse vehicles available at Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction.
