The 2006 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction kicked off this year's Florida
event with an elegant Gala which benefited the Darrell Gwynn Foundation and John
Walsh's National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. The evening was a
night to remember as tables were adorned with crimson red roses and a rockin'

The evening culminated in a live auction which included donated
items such as tickets to the "Barrett-Jackson Experience" in Scottsdale, tickets
to the 2007 Super Bowl to be held in Miami, and a weekend of NASCAR racing
excitement at this year's Ford Championship weekend in Homestead Florida. A host
of silent auction items were also sold to the highest bidders.
