DAA NORTHWEST & DEALERS RAISE $123,400 FOR LOCAL NON-PROFITS
Auction’s 24th Anniversary Sale Fundraiser Benefits Four Spokane Charities
SPOKANE, WA (Nov. 17, 2016) — DAA Northwest’s 24th Anniversary brought dealers to the lanes and to the table Wednesday and Thursday, November 9th and 10th. DAA began the celebration with an 860-unit Wednesday afternoon sale that featured consignment from Hyundai Finance, Kia Finance, Ford Motor Company, Ford Credit, Toyota Financial Services, Avis Budget Group, and Ally Auto Remarketing.
Following the sale, DAA’s customers and their guests gathered in Northern Quest Resort’s Pend Oreille Ballroom for a prime rib dinner and fundraiser auction to benefit the Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Young Life, Union Gospel Mission and Spring of Hope International. Unique live auction items included an ultimate run time and lane for one consigned unit during DAA’s 2017 Rock & Roll Sale, a gourmet McConkey moose tenderloin dinner for six, elite access to a Gonzaga Bulldogs practice session or pre-game shoot around with the team and coaches plus two courtside seats to a Bulldogs home game, and more. DAA matched all funds, bringing the evening’s total to $123.400. Since its inception, the auction’s annual Anniversary Sale Fundraiser has raised over $1.2 million for its local non-profit partners. “Our thanks go out to all of our customers who contributed to the evening,” said DAA president Bob McConkey. “These organizations depend on the support of this event. They are absolutely filled with gratitude and are in awe of the generosity of the dealer community.
Dealers returned to DAA’s lanes Thursday, November 10th for a full day of auction activity. The two-day, 54% sale topped all previous Anniversary Sale results.
