To support the Keystone Wounded Warriors organization, Manheim Pennsylvania has raised $70,000 as a donation to Keystone Wounded Warriors, which is a portion of proceeds from last week’s third-annual Xtreme Spring Event. A Spring Charity Gala to benefit veterans was held as part of two-day event.
Manheim Pennsylvania hosted the world’s largest highline vehicle auction – a “100 Grander” sale – featuring a 2008 Bugatti Veyron, many Rolls Royce, Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini models and other high-dollar vehicles on March 20, according to the company. Additionally, Ultra Highline, Corvette, Motorcycle, and Classic Car auctions were held on March 21.
A portion of the proceeds from the Xtreme Spring Event benefits the Pennsylvania-based Keystone Wounded Warriors. This year’s donation marks a $20,000 increase over the donation made to the Wounded Warrior Project in 2013. From 2012-13, Manheim Pennsylvania raised $110,000 for Wounded Warrior Project.
“Our organization greatly appreciates the efforts of Manheim Pennsylvania, its staff and customers,” said Paul Spurgin, director and co-founder of Keystone Wounded Warriors. “We depend on the generosity of companies like Manheim to be able to provide the support and services our veterans need. We are very grateful for this donation, and look forward to a continued partnership with Manheim.”
“We are so proud to support the Keystone Wounded Warriors and the Pennsylvania veterans it impacts,” said Julie Picard, vice president and general manager of Manheim Pennsylvania. “Our third-annual Xtreme Spring Sale was extra special for Manheim Pennsylvania, because we were able to support such a deserving organization. Giving back to the community is an important value of Manheim and its operating locations.”
