We had another great turnout for our charity auction at the 2017 NIADA Convention and Expo in Las Vegas. A large crowd gathered to bid on a red 2016 Nissan Frontier SV crew cab pickup.

Car City Super Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan, walked away with the truck with a winning bid of $28,000. The crowd contributed even more, and the total donation for the NIADA Foundation was $28,675.

This is the fifth straight year ADESA has partnered with other businesses within the KAR group of companies to give back to our industry.

Including this year’s donation, the ADESA/AFC/IAA-sponsored auctions at the NIADA Convention have raised a total of $125,875 for the NIADA Foundation. The Foundation does so much for our industry, from awarding scholarships to deserving college-bound students to providing training and educational opportunities to car dealers and the public.

Some of the Foundation’s past activities also include significant donations to charities like Heart of a Warrior Foundation, as well as disaster relief efforts and endowments for university scholarships.

Thank you to everyone who came out to support this year’s charity auction. We look forward to continuing this tradition at next year’s NIADA Convention.
