Celebrating nine was fine at Dealers Auto Auction of Murfreesboro.
The auction commemorated its ninth anniversary with a promotional event that offered more than 900 vehicles and sold more than 450 units on Aug. 22. The event also raised money for the Hope Center Ministries. Together with dealers, the endeavor generated more than $45,000.
Hope Center ministries is focused on restoring individuals, families and communities struggling with drug addiction. Through designated phases of support, residents work through the challenges in their lives, deal with root-issues and journey forward with newfound hope.
City Auto Finance, a sister company to the Dealers Auto Auction Group, provided drinks, lunch and ice cream to the dealers, and Caprock was the spotlight consignor of the day, offering more than 100 units.
Additional units consigned by Emkay Leasing, United Auto Credit, ARI and other national consignors were also offered for the event. Titans football cheerleaders were also there to lend support for the event.
The DAAG auctions have a long history of giving back to the community. Every year, they support many local charities. Giving back is an activity important to chief executive officer David Andrews, who said, “We are so blessed with being able to be a part of so many amazing organizations. We really believe that supporting local charities is the right thing to do.”
