Helping Hand

Over the years, Barrett-Jackson has raised in excess of $154 million from bidders who show the compassion and desire to help others less fortunate.

When sharing his thoughts on the charitable side of each event, Barrett-Jackson President Steve Davis stated that spreading awareness of each charity means so much to him.

“For us, we do so many things and that’s what makes you so proud about what we’ve have been able to accomplish,” Davis said about charity. “We get a lot of attention and that is important to harness that energy and that excitement and attention. Not only create the excitement of the car world that takes place on the auction block, but to be able to touch the lives, in particular, are men and women in uniform, children’s charities. The things that we’ve been able to do, it’s fulfilling.”

Davis believes that bidders jacking up the price of a car makes him ecstatic, especially if it is going to a good cause.

“Looking back going on 35 years now or even longer with Barrett-Jackson, that is one of the most significant and validating things that we have to be proud of.” Davis said. “Car prices and the coolest of the cars is awesome in that moment is an amazing, magical thing to have place on the auction block. But when you are literally touching the lives of people around the world not only by the donation, but by the awareness that we created, particularly with our military, it is fulfilling in so many ways. It’s a real honor.”
