The 2023 Auction for Athletes was a huge success once again, raising over $230,000 for Special Olympics BC and the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC!
The 2023 auction, held from April 24 to 27, was the biggest yet with more than 275 sought-after prizes! The auction was steered to success by New Car Dealers and supporters who generously donated the record number of auction items, made cash pledges, bid on items, and engaged their networks to join them in making a difference.
“I am so inspired by our industry and the lasting impact they make wherever they come together,” said Blair Qualey, President and CEO, New Car Dealers Association of BC. “This support will make such a huge difference for Special Olympics athletes. I extend my sincere thanks to all the amazing sponsors and everyone who placed bids that provide important support for Special Olympics BC’s year-round sports programs as well as important car careers grants and scholarships.”
For more than 35 years, the auction has raised more than $5.8 million to support the life-changing work of Special Olympics BC and the New Car Dealers Foundation of BC.
