ADESA, AFC, IAA to Hold Benefit Auction at NIADA Convention
June 7, 2017—For the fifth consecutive year, ADESA, AFC and IAA—all part of the KAR Auction Services group of companies—will auction off a premier vehicle during the NIADA Convention and Expo to benefit the NIADA Foundation.
This year's vehicle is a red 2016 Nissan Frontier SV crew cab pickup with a 4.0L V6 engine, 5-speed automatic, 26,167 miles on the odometer and gray cloth interior.
The truck will be on display in the Expo Hall during the Convention, which begins Monday, June 12, at The Mirage in Las Vegas. The Expo opens the next evening. The auction will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 15, at the NIADA Dealer Lounge in the center of the Expo Hall. ADESA will transport the vehicle free for the winning bidder to any location in the continental U.S.
All proceeds from the auction will benefit the NIADA Foundation, which spearheads the association's commitment to charitable giving as well as awarding scholarships to deserving college-bound students across the nation and providing training and educational opportunities to automobile dealers and the general public.
Past foundation activities include significant donations to charities such as the Heart of a Warrior Foundation, contributions for disaster relief efforts and endowments for university scholarships.
Over the past four years, the ADESA/AFC/IAA-sponsored auctions at the NIADA Convention have raised a total of $97,200 for the NIADA Foundation. During last year's event, a 2015 Chrysler 300 Limited sold for $27,500.
