As you know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many of our auctions rallied together employees, customers and friends to support this worthwhile cause last month. Here is what two of our locations, ADESA PA and ADESA Charlotte, did to raise funds.

ADESA PA held their annual PINK sale on October 16, raising nearly $6,000 to donate to York Cancer Center, which provides a wide range of cancer treatment and support services.

ADESA PA dealer sales and services manager, Matt Mitteldorfer, welcomed dealers to the special sale with pink cotton candy, and employees donned pink apparel. Several of the departments assembled gift baskets for auction, with some going for $500 or more, and a handmade quilt fetched $1,300.

ADESA Charlotte celebrated Halloween a little differently—by raising money for the cure. The auction location invited dealer customers to an exciting sale on Halloween, ending with a head-shaving contest to benefit the Susan J. Komen foundation.

ADESA Charlotte’s own Joe Guyer, general manager, Pamela Keefe and Doug Merkle collectively raised $400 by seeing who could gather the most donations to shave their heads (with the congrats going to Joe). And, the auction raised a grand total of $3,423.67 from employees, customers, family and friends to be donated to Komen.
