I-CAR Education Foundation to Display at Future Barrett-Jackson Car Auctions

The I-CAR Education Foundation will participate in future Barrett-Jackson car auctions, the first taking place Oct. 7-10 in Las Vegas, to provide additional awareness of the supports provided to future professionals of the collision repair industry and to highlight the Ultimate Collision Education Makeover program, where one school will be awarded a $50,000 grant.

Through the assistance of Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes and Barrett-Jackson, the I-CAR Education Foundation will have a donated booth space during the auction’s trade show to provide the thousands of car enthusiast attendees with additional information about the foundation’s efforts.

“We are extremely thankful to our industry partners at Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes and new friends at Barrett-Jackson for arranging for the I-CAR Education Foundation’s presence at future Barrett-Jackson auctions,” said Education Foundation Executive Director Scott Kruger. “This will prove to be an excellent opportunity to help showcase how the I-CAR Education Foundation supports automotive collision repair students, schools and instructors in front of the premier automotive enthusiasts around the world.”

“We’re thrilled to have the I-CAR Education Foundation on board to promote the importance of automotive education,” said Gary Bennett, vice president of consignment at Barrett-Jackson. “Their efforts to raise awareness and educate students are vital to the future of the collector car and restoration industries. There will be hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts at our auctions in Las Vegas, Scottsdale and Palm Beach eager to learn more about this great program.”

Kruger noted that the foundation’s goal for the near future is to have a vehicle auctioned off during a Barrett-Jackson event where the proceeds would assist the foundation.
