Watch the Darrell Gwynn Foundation LIVE on Speed Channel, April 8

April 7th, 2011

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – The Darrell Gwynn Foundation will auction two cars and make a wheelchair donation LIVE on Speed Channel on Friday, April 8 at approximately 4 p.m. EST. Be sure to watch live on TV as the Darrell Gwynn Foundation tries to raise money at the auction to benefit the foundation’s mission to provide AWARENESS, PREVENTION, SUPPORT and ultimately a CURE for paralysis.

Proceeds from the sales of a street-version replica Wood Brothers Mercury Montego driven by David Pearson at the famous 1976 Daytona 500 and a 2009 Ford Shelby GT donated by Tom & Cindy Wright will benefit the foundation’s Wheelchair Donation Program, Education & Prevention Program, Paralyzed Assistance Fund, Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week initiative and Fast Track Laboratory.

The Darrell Gwynn Foundation will donate a $8,600 custum-built wheelchair to Christopher Torres of Miami, Fla. Diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome, Christopher, 11 years-old, was denied by his health insurance the durable medical equipment he needed and Medicaid also denies their services. Out of love and desperation, Christopher’s father attached wheels to a wooden kitchen chair and that is what Christopher is currently using for mobility. The Darrell Gwynn Foundation stepped in and will make the wheelchair donation on stage at Barrett-Jackson Palm beach prior to the auction of both cars.  The donation was made through the Darrell Gwynn Foundation’s Wheelchair Donation Program.
