Visiting ADESA Phoenix last week for the auction’s second annual Legendary Sales Week proved to be nothing short of a legendary experience. Puns aside, it truly was a fantastic event, and I enjoyed the chance to visit with many customers and employees at ADESA Phoenix. We also welcomed many special guests throughout the week.

In addition to running several high-energy auctions for our customers, we also hosted a special charity auction to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation—a 2012 Chevy Camaro SS convertible. It was a pleasure to have Grace, a JDRF ambassador and remarkable young lady, and Dan Kennedy from GM Remarketing with us for the auction. Together, we presented JDRF with $45,000 from the winning bid to support their mission and research. Congratulations to Dave Ressler of Ressler Motor Company on his beautiful new car and for supporting a worthwhile cause.

ADESA Phoenix did an outstanding job of hosting this event, but it was not possible without the help of all our ADESA GM Sponsored auctions, employees and everyone that visited throughout the week. We hope everyone who attended enjoyed themselves and left with some great memories.
