Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, will host an eclectic line up of vehicles that will cross the block at No Reserve to benefit local and national charitable organizations during its Scottsdale auction Jan. 10-18, 2015, at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Ariz. Among the most anticipated vehicles consigned will be Jeff Gordon and Ray Evernham’s 1999 No. 24 Pepsi Chevrolet Monte Carlo and PGA Tour champion, Bubba Watson’s ’39 Cadillac LaSalle C-Hawk Custom Hardtop Roadster.
“We’re grateful to those who chose our Scottsdale auction as a way to help some truly amazing charities,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “This year we’ll sell some very significant vehicles, including Jeff Gordon and Ray Evernham’s No. 24 race car for charity. I’m especially pleased that one of our consignors, Joe Riley, is donating a ’79 Hurst Cutlass to support The Cancer Research Fund at TGEN in honor of my father, Russ and brother, Brian.”
Watson is donating a ’39 Cadillac LaSalle C-Hawk Custom Hardtop Roadster (Lot #3005) to benefit Birdies for the Brave and it is scheduled to cross the block on Friday, Jan. 16, at 5 p.m. The auction will air live on the Velocity channel from 4 p.m. to 12 a.m. ET on Friday.
Watson will donate all proceeds from the sale of the car to Birdies for the Brave and will attend the auction joined by Rear Admiral Michael E. McLaughlin (Retired). “It’s an honor to support the Green Beret Foundation and Birdies for the Brave, who do so much to give back to members of our U.S. Armed Forces and their families,” said Watson.
Birdies for the Brave was originally created in 2006 by Phil Mickelson and his wife, Amy, to support combat-injured troops. The PGA TOUR subsequently adopted Birdies for the Brave and expanded it to include a variety of military outreach and appreciation activities during TOUR events, as well as a series of Birdies for the Brave fundraising events at TPCs and partner clubs nationwide – an effort that has raised more than $13 million for military home front charities that directly serve wound
