2006 Palm Beach Barrett-Jackson Gala Raises $29,000 to Benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation

 

Palm Beach, March 29, 2006 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' live band played to a packed house. The energized crowd danced and dined on classic buffet-style local fare.

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.

This year's event raised $29,000 to benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation (DGF).

"Tonight is another great night for the Darrell Gwynn Foundation. We thank Craig Jackson and the entire staff at Barrett-Jackson for their continued commitment to all that our organization stands for. We look forward to many more exciting Barrett-Jackson moments in years to come," said DGF President Darrell Gwynn.
