Auction Leaders and Local Dealers Raise $100,000 For Cancer Research
November 29th, 2017 -- WILLIAMSTON, SOUTH CAROLINA --
The month of November has been a fundraising phenomenon for cancer research in honor of Henry Stanley.Earlier in the month, auction leaders from around the country held a charity auction with some impressive items including a Charlie Daniels autographed fiddle, a week-long trip to Key Largo, a trip for two to the 2018 Kentucky Derby and more.The benefit, led by ServNet Chairman of the Board, Kevin Brown, raised just over $40,000 toward melanoma research at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University – the charity that Henry Stanley and Carolina Auto Auction raise money for at their annual golf tournament.The generosity from auction leaders across the country and dedication toward finding a cure - for the benefit of all of us - was very impressive.
In addition, Carolina Auto Auction hosted its own charity fundraiser in November.The Beards for Bucks campaign was one where a handful of men at the auction joined the larger No-Shave November movement to also raise money for the Winship Cancer Institute.Over four weeks, the auction raised another $10,000.In addition to those two events, the auction collected very generous donations and donated some on their own, with the final total coming to $100,000!
Not to be outdone, the ladies at CAA are hosting an Ugliest Christmas Attire contest in December to try and match the excitement from this past month’s charity drive.Carolina Auto Auction is already taking sponsorships for its annual Celebrity Charity Golf Tournament on May 15th, 2018, which will include a large raffle, local celebrities, and continue the tradition of great golf tournaments that CAA is known for.
And even more – on December 20th CAA is auctioning off 3 signed footballs from Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia to commemorate the upcoming college football playoffs.Each ball is signed by the head coach of each school.All proceeds will go to Winship as well.
