Every January, tens of thousands of car aficionados and gearheads descend on Scottsdale for the annual Barrett-Jackson auction—a one-of-a-kind event featuring the rarest, most amazing and exotic cars crossing the auction block.

In tandem with this global auction event, ADESA Phoenix hosts its annual Legendary Sales Week. The event allows our customers to experience the glitz and glamour of both auctions during this high-energy week.

As part of its 2018 Legendary Sales Week events, ADESA Phoenix auctioned off a 2017 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Premium Convertible to raise money for JDRF.

Before the bidding started, 10-year-old Davis Schapler, a JDRF junior ambassador from the local chapter, spoke to the crowd about living with diabetes. He also had the honor of yelling “Sold!” when the hammer dropped on the donated Mustang.

The winning bid of $22,250 came from C U Auto Sales of Albuquerque, New Mexico. All proceeds of the sale go to JDRF to support type 1 diabetes research.

JDRF’s research mission is to discover, develop and deliver advances that cure, better treat and prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). It is a global leader in funding T1D research.

In addition to raising over $20,000 at Legendary Sales Week, ADESA took lots of photos at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale. Check out a few of them below:
