In an unprecedented move Barrett-Jackson is set to break records and turn heads at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction thanks to the auctioning of the first 2017 Corvette Grand Sport and 50th Anniversary Camaro on April 8. Barrett-Jackson is known for their sizable contributions to charities both local to their auction locations and those with a nationwide base. Most recently, they auctioned off the first 2017 Acura NSX, which, in conjunction with ten other vehicles, brought in an incredible $3.4 million for charity.
Thanks to Chevrolet's generous donation of the inaugural production installment of the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport, Barrett-Jackson is keeping with tradition and will auction the vehicle off. One-hundred percent of the funds raised will benefit the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute-- "one of only 45 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the country," according to GM. The 2017 Corvette Grand Sport, Vin #001, is scheduled for auction in Palm Beach, Fla. on Friday, April 8. On Saturday, April 9, the iconic 2017 Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition is set for auction, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the United Way of Southeastern Michigan. The 50th Anniversary Camaro boasts exclusive anniversary stripes and is finished in Nightfall Gray Metallic. Check out both of these and many more unique offerings at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction. [soliloquy id="100191"]
