Saturday, June 25th was the very exciting occasion for the 2016 Summer edition of the 55KRC/Dale Donovan “Extreme Car Make-Over” event at the Goodwill Auto Auction featuring a fully-restored 2009 Cadillac STS. The 2009 Cadillac STS was lovingly re-conditioned by our wonderful sponsors including: Donovan’s Auto and Tire Center, Eric’s Auto Service, CarStar and Gateway Tire and Service Centers. The lucky winner was Mr. Alan Zimmerman with a winning bid of $18,000!
Proceeds from the Goodwill Auto Auction and the “Extreme Car Make-Over” event go towards the organization’s century long mission of putting people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans to work in the community. Last year, Goodwill served more than 3500 people and assisted 919 to get jobs in the Greater Cincinnati area. The organization is grateful for the support of 55KRC and Dale Donovan as well as celebrity spokesman, Joe Walter and all of the 2016 Summer sponsors for their support of this importance mission of service. This is the fifth year that 55KRC and Dale Donovan have partnered with Goodwill on this exciting project which reflects their on-going commitment to Goodwill and helping people to obtain employment.
For the past 16 years, Goodwill’s Auto Auction has grown to be one of the largest and most successful non-profit auto auction events in the country, helping to provide funding for the organization’s critical employment and training services.
“Goodwill is so grateful to 55KRC, Dale Donovan and all of our generous sponsors that have supported the “Extreme Vehicle Make-Over” event over the past five years,” said Kim Masters, Auction Manager. The 2016 Summer Sponsors include Donovan’s Auto and Tire Center, Eric’s Auto Service, CarStar and Gateway Tire and Service Centers.
