Auction Of First 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible Brings Donations To Over $2.2 Million To-date Toward Karmanos Cancer Institute's Annual Dinner

"We were honored that Chevrolet selected Barrett-Jackson to make the sale of its first production 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible at our Palm Beach auction," said Barrett-Jackson Chairman and CEO Craig Jackson. "My passion for unique, high-end cars is matched by my enthusiasm to raise money through our auctions for great charities, such as the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. It's evident that Rick Hendrick shares this same enthusiasm and we couldn't be happier that he purchased both the Stingray coupe back at our Scottsdale auction in January, and now the convertible in Palm Beach."

The donation of this collectible vehicle demonstrates GM's outstanding commitment to the Karmanos Cancer Institute. In addition, for the second consecutive year, the GM Foundation has generously donated $400,000 to cancer research, bringing GM and the GM Foundation's total support of Karmanos to nearly $7.4 million over the last 16 years.

"The commitment of GM and the GM Foundation to further the Karmanos Cancer Institute's innovative cancer research and exceptional patient care is nothing short of magnificent," said Gerold Bepler, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of Karmanos. "From the company's top leadership to its employees and partners, GM's investment to improve life for those diagnosed with cancer and significantly impact our global fight to end this disease is truly outstanding. We are extremely grateful to GM and the GM Foundation, the team at Barrett-Jackson, Mr. Hendrick and all our sponsors and supporters for the incredible generosity, moving us closer to a world without cancer."

The Karmanos Cancer Institute's 31st Annual Dinner is Saturday, April 20, at the General Motors' Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly Center, 2500 East Grand Blvd., in Detroit. Event Chairs Mark and Kim Reuss will be joined by emcee Ruth Spencer, anchor and consumer reporter for WDIV Local 4.

The elegant evening will feature a cocktail reception; seated dinner; entertainment by DJ Brad Hales and Motown legends The FOUR TOPS; dancing; a raffle of a stunning 18kt. white gold, pave set diamond bangle bracelet from Tapper's Diamond & Fine Jewelry; and brief program. There will also be an exciting live auction featuring unique VIP experience packages. The event benefits the critical work of Karmanos researchers and physicians who are creating the next standard of cancer care that will be used around the world.
