Last Sunday afternoon at the 2012 NADA Convention and Expo, it was hard to ignore the hundreds of people gathering in the ADESA booth for our charity Harley-Davidson auction. With several active bidders and more than one occasion where the entire audience broke into applause over a new dollar amount, energy levels were definitely running on high.

During the last few minutes, the auction was pretty heated. However, there can be only one winning bid. Thanks to the generosity of Barry Lundgren, owner of Lundgren Honda of Auburn and Lundgren Honda of Greenfield, Canine Companions for Independence will be able to assist even more children and veterans in need.

The ADESA team was fortunate enough to capture the auction on video. Check out the clip below.
