Auction Raises Over $7,000 for Foundation

Adesa Auctions organized a live auction to remember.

On Saturday, September 17, 2016, Adesa Auctions organized and orchestrated a live auction at the 2016 ARA AGM Awards Banquet, with all proceeds going to the Automotive Retailers Foundation Inc. (ARFI).

This generous donation of time and resources was no small feat. John MacDonald and Mark Bergevin handled every detail from collecting donations from ARA members to purchasing the items for auction to conducting the live auction at the Westin Resort & Spa in Whistler.

As the auctioneers, John and Mark put on quite the performance, mingling through the banquet tables as they kept track of the bids as lightning speed. Staff and members remarked that it was very impressive to experience up-close.

In all, the auction raised $7,100 for the Foundation, and everyone in attendance left feeling entertained and knowing the money raised went to an excellent cause.

The ARFI would like to thank John MacDonald and Mark Bergevin for all of their hard work to make the live auction such a success.
