Nearly $10 Million Raised For Charity At Barrett-Jackson

In Barrett-Jackson’s 48 year history they have raised $114 million to date with a staggering $9.6 million of that coming at this year’s Scottsdale Auction.

For us, the pièce de résistance was of course the CJ7 we built for the Gary Sinise Foundation raising $1.31 million, but that was just one of 16 cars working toward the record $9.6 million. The money raised by the Jeep would make it the third most raised behind the first production 2020 Toyota Supra which brought in $2.1 million and the 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition VIN 001 which took the top spot with $2.5 million benefitting the United Way for Southeastern Michigan. The prices of these cars not only represent their sale prices, but extra donations made by individuals during the auction who were moved by the giving spirit helping to contribute to the record.
